Sorry for the late summary..
Thank you to all that answered me : :

There is a fairly good description of what is to be done to move AnswerBooks
in the Solaris 2.4 System Administration AnswerBook, Software and AnswerBook
Packages Administration Guide, Page 42. I found this location by searching for
the word cardcatalog in the administration AnswerBook.

What you have to do is to create a master card catalog and to modify the
original card catalogs. Furthermore you have to tell the AnswerBook Software
where it can find the master card catalog by setting the variable

This procedure is also needed if you want to distribute your AnswerBook on a
Network, and that's what is described in the location above.

kind regards

Jens Fischer :

To the best of my knowledge you can move your answerbooks around the way you
like it, as long as you update your ab_cardcatalog files appropritely using
the ab_admin commands to modify the tocpath, pspath, and indexpath settings
correctly. Of course, your env. variables or whatever way you use to let your
answerbook know where these catalogs reside should be set appropriately, too.

-Kalpesh :

It can been changed the default directory for the installation of packages.
In the file /var/sadm/install/admin/default the line "basedir=default" can
been changed to "basedir=<todirectorywhatyouwant>"
You can now remove some answerbooks and installe there new.

It is a alternative.
