I'm downloading the dvd from now. Somehow I manage to never hear of that
site. Not sure how that happened. It looks like some of the stuff there is rather old and
if the cyrux is older then what I'm running on linux I'll compile it myself. I'm not sure
what version of Solaris your running but I have solaris x86 9/10 with the latest patches
installed. I haven't added any other software so it's a purely stock installation. I'll
let you know how it works out.
