	Thank you everybody for your help, particularly Casper Dik, Greg
Chavez, David Foster, Michael Schulte, Thomas Anders and an unknown

	And the answer is that you can't remount the filesystem with ro option.
You can do it with other SO, like Linux, but not with Solaris. I don't
know why, because this is a useful capabilitie. I, and many other, use
to mount /usr with ro option, and sometimes I have to remount it with rw
option to install software, but I don't want to reboot the system and I
can't umount /usr filesystem.

	Summarizing, I think this will be a good enhancement to ufs filesystem
of Solaris
