Only three replies total. And I even let the weekend pass. :-)

Regarding the manpage viewing problem, Przemol pointed out that my boxes are 
missing SUNWlibC, which hit the nail right on the head. 

Two positive reports on SDS from "eshafto" and Steve Hunt, which said
that SDS will run fine, albeit a little slow on the Netra X1. I've already 
installed it over the weekend and will gladly trade some speed for increased 

Thanks all,
