thanks to all replies, and yes, the solution exists!
a very thankful to Chris Banal for sending this link, it seems that few
people are aware of it
or perhaps it is only related to solaris 10?

other people who replied:
- bashkar g
- peter kunst
- hendrik visage
- hike
- tim bradshaw
- darren dunham

the old way seems to be the easiest one, if you have very short time...

PS: Sun is in the process to send me a new disk.
