not 7 but mozilla 1.1, on my ss2+/s2.6.  launches so slow i wonder if
my system's locked up.  has ten times the rss [~35M] of ns4.79, and
three times the swap [~350M]  of -everything-else- i have running,

oughta be tolerable on your system; works fine on a 500MHz/128M imac...
then again you could run 4.8 too, if your solaris is any newer than
