"For all of you out there who have considered trying out Solaris
8 for x86, you may be a little intimidated by the scope of the
project for installation. Never fear, assuming that you have
consulted the hardware requirements page and have found yourself to
be in compliance, then you will be pleasantly surprised by the ease
with which the install proceeds...."
"I am going to assume that you have now started you installation
and have installed the base system and rebooted into the Solaris
WebStart installation portion. Here is where the trouble begins for
those of us who use the @HOME cable modem. During this portion of
the install you will be prompted to select whether your computer is
connected to a network or not. I have never been able to use this
portion of the install, either for DHCPed or for Static. For
some reason, it does not like the way that the @HOME service
requires you to connect. Do Not Despair, with a little effort, and
some patience, you can complete this setup. Select
NON-Networked and proceed to enter your @HOME designated computer
name for your computer and select your regional information to set
up the time and so forth. Continue with the installation and
install the software that you would like that is provided with your
copy of Solaris 8."
