I'm not sure if ye understand my understanding of the Solaris feature...
*grin*. You can do an install of Solaris 8 onto a mounted non-root disk,
do an install, play with the configuration files, then reboot and instantly
you're up to a configured Solaris 8, with minimal downtime. I wasn't talking
about a live upgrade, that's far too risky for big customers where downtime
simply can't happen :)
