Well, the add_install_client I gave "noisebox sun4m" and the LX
IS sun4m.  And it is getting the Sol9 boot directory... I'm not
sure how else to verify...

That is a thought...  although I'd prefer it to just work =)

I mainly wanted to use 9 because so many have said how much zippier
it is.  I'm going to try doing music from the LX, and I need as
much ZIP as I can get from it to do so =)
