solaris 8, 9 ,10 will not crash with a full root partition!
sun recommends one large root partition and a swap partition!
your sun support provider can provide this information.
solaris 8, 9, 10 reserve enough space so that root can log into a sun
box and delete files.
this appies to the root partition and may not apply to other partitions
(such as mounted oracle/san partitions).
the freespace variable is also tunable and can be increased to suit your
site's specific needs.
