SUMMARY: Solaris 10, SMF, Jumpstart & DiskSuite

Well I ended up leaving it as a legacy service thus using the rc
scripts. Most answers pointed out that legacy type scripts where
still supported. Some mentioned Solaris now supports adding ODS
directly from the jumpstart profile.

For those interested in more details on both possible solutions, I
wrote more information on a little page:

IF you do not want or cannot access the webpage and would still like
the information, let me know and I will format it in an email with
scripts inline.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to respond.
