Solaris 9 Media SUMMARY

Hey Tim,

I did download the ISO's for both x86 and Intel, and cd2 ((1 of 2) for the 
sixth time) doesn't read because of some missing magic number, I even put 
the spiffy labels, on it.   I use the same cd creator as what is 
recommended. Disk 2, seems to be an ISO, and the web install won't read 

Sun has plain p*ssed me off this time, what are they thinking? How many 
people actually have DVD capable sun boxes? 
 If their was a choice for CD or DVD, I didn't see it, and I usually am 
pretty good at seeing discrepancies.   Too much wasted time. 
I don't see any option BUT the DVD if you want the extra software. 

Sorry to rant , but I am really spun up,,,,   what a mess just trying to 
go to 9.  I have two U30's at home, and at work some 4800's, 450's, and a 
bunch of pizza boxes, and I am not sure how many have DVD capability.

Talk to you tomorrow all.

Nope, but you can download the ISO's and burn your own CD's.
