Solaris 8 is a bit weird about installing IDE drives with the bigdisk
I had to do some finagleing with the format process to get anything
8gb to be created.
I am running 9 with a 120gb (130 is the magic spot where the disk size
My friend who is running 10 reported at the time he loaded it on a 5 (same
processor and motherboard as the 5) that it required no intervention
in the formatting, it just worked.
I plan to download and try to run 10 with the development stuff, sometime
Solaris is much better than most OS's about multi booting. you can stop
the boot process and specify a different root partition and have both 8
and 10 on the same drive, or on separate drives. The firmware specifies
the target that gets booted, and you can change the eeprom under solaris
to specify which one to boot, then reboot to switch from one to the
other with a convenient script on both.
