/sbin files required to start the system and scripts to control
the boot process
/usr/bin system binaries. /bin is linked to this on SunOS 4.x and 5.x.
/usr/sbin further system communication and administration programs,
daemons (/usr/etc under SunOS 4.x).
/usr/5bin SysV binaries (link to /usr/bin under SunOS 5.x).
/usr/ucb BSD binaries (/usr/bsd under IRIX)
/usr/ccs C Compiler System binaries
"Tuning" in which way? Kernel parameter tuning is done via /etc/system
and/or ndd. The Solaris Answerbooks (docs.sun.com) should give you some
ideas. There are other tunable parameters like the default number of
daemons for services like NFS, or tunefs(1) for file systems.
I don't know Solaris x86 at all, but I don't think it's different
from the SPARC versiuon in this regard.
