Ouch... that will be a painfully slow setup..plus its advisable to come up with
the full 64megs.

make sure the CD drive is in scsi ID6 or check http://saturn.tlug.org/suncdfaq/
for compatibility issues...

If you REALLY want to get solaris on there, Id swap out the 650MB drive for the
1Gig you have...or use both 540 and 650 drives in the pizza box and juggle the
partions...40 megs might be ok..not sure. I tried with 16 megs many moons ago and
the thing choked during the setup.
