Of course.  The "Free Solaris" isnt licensed for anything >1 CPU, but
it will *run* - there's no built in "licensing" for the number of CPUs.

I have a 6-CPU, 3G RAM system from AnySystem (E3K) and a latest SOl9 fired
up just fine (see http://www.sunhelp.org/e3k).

I think you're thinking of the x86 32-bit 4G limit?  I don't know of a 
memory limit with Solaris.
