Back in the Solaris 8 days, the trick was to use fdisk to create a primary partition and mark it as type 'Linux Swap' after which Solaris would happily recognise it as a location to install into. Quite how it happened that Solaris uses the same partition type as Linux swap is shrouded in the mists of time. Cheers, Matthew -- Dr Matthew J Seaman MA, D.Phil.
