Ack. I spend a year and a half on a Sun hotline, and then spend 5 hours
trying to install Solaris on my home PC. I gave up. I assume people
remember the hassle we had replacing the motherboard on Redbrick's main
server yes ?
Solaris X86 is for single OS machines that never change, or masochists.
Point to note. You can't install Solaris X86 2.51 and Windows NT on the
same machine, if it has a 4GB disk. It'll work on a 3.2 GB disk, or a 4.5,
but not on a 4.. Don't know why. All I know is that you install
windows, then you install Solaris, and Windows can no longer find it's hard
disk. Stick to linux, unless you have a sparc!!
