I thought I couldn't update Zones unless using Live Upgrade or Jumpstart 
Upgrade?  I thought I can't run an older ZONE on an updated System? (as would 
be the case in the above steps?)  Can I just apply the updated packages/patches 
in the latest Distro if using the above steps?  That would be great if it would 
be supported/worked??

Thats the question ;)

Again, can I apply patches/pkgs on an older Zone when the server has already 
been updated seperately? If so, would it be supported? As its not using 
jumpstart or Live Upgrade?
