I suspect that once installed on a "valid" system, you could transfer the system disk, "boot -r" and have Solaris 10 running... I wonder if Solaris really checks the CPU on startup every time  if it installed, it should be valid, right? ;^)

Just a thought - of course, the real answer is to get a couple nice 300 MHz CPUs...
