As far as I have been able to find out, some apps were groken when
installing OS 1.0 on a 2.6 system. But a 2.5.1 should work w/o any
problem. I also tracked down OS 1.1 which seems to fix some of the 1.0

As soon as I have some free time I will see if I can get a sparc 10 with
2.6 running OS. However OS or NS binaries will not work on OpenStep
solaris w/o recompiling.
