I know one could order Solaris CD but do not know if it the CD would be sent (almost) free of cost.

I was hoping perhaps you could try them out, and would let me/us know how other OS's behave... - Parv -- _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
