[rescue] Solaris 10 build 63

OK, maybe this isn't exactly rescue-related, but a lot of us use
Solaris, right?

I am just finishing up a Solaris 10 build 63 (beta) install on a U2/
2300/1GB RAM system.

The installer is a little clunky.  For some reason I was not able to
boot off the second CD and had to use the GUI.  Maybe they no longer
allow you to do this, or maybe (more likely) the CDR was hosed for
some reason.

The installer feels a lot slower than other installers, like OpenBSD,
FreeBSD, RH Linux, Debian, etc.  It is annoying that it does not
appear to be multi-threaded, in that the CD is not read while other
things are happening - it's like there is just one big shell script

I really want to check out the Zones feature, though.  Has anyone else
played with zones and containers yet?
