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

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
