Thanks to to everyone who replied. It seems like the path of least  
resistence is to up the start up script in either /etc/rc2.d or /etc/ 
rc3.d which seems reasonable to me. Several others said I need to  
creaete an svcs profile and then have it started by svcadm.

I was also referred to and 
  for info about SMF and how to set this up vis svcs and svcadm. The  
advantage over just putting a startup script in /etc/rc2.d or /etc/ 
rc3.d is that it gives you more control over the ssh service; however,  
this is control that I do not need at this time.

One person asked why I don't use the bult-in ssh that comes with  
Solaris 10? The primary reason is, after spending a good solid day on  
setting it up, neither me nor my manager were able to get it to work  
properly, so we decided to go with Open SSH which is more current  
anyway. Other than the start up question, Open SSH 4.7 works great on  
our T2000.

Thanks to everyone who replied to my question. Your answers were all  
very helpful.
