Sound like a plan?  Will also need someone else with a Solaris 8 SPARC

I have access to several (two dozen) currently unused Ultra30 systems. I can install Sol8 on one and Sol9 on another and provide ssh access (once I figure out how to get ssh working on Solaris) to you, once I know your static IP address or subnet range. It may be a few days to a week before I can do the actual installation, however.
Wow, thanks Lamar. *That's* about as good an offer as I was hoping for.

Mark, I can still teach you how to package stuff if you want. In this instance, having direct remote access to systems and being able to ensure things are 100% fresh and correct is that bit safer, as well as having other systems to test against.

The easiest way to get OpenSSH up and running on a new Solaris box is to follow the instructions at:

He provides packages there for just about everything, although you will need to download the official Solaris patch from the site that adds the /dev/random and urandom devices to the device tree. It's all pretty straightforward. :-)

Can't wait! (But am going to have to). ;-)

Regards and best wishes,
