Yes, the iso images are identical to the official cds from Sun.
But in their ultimate wisdom, Sun has decided to not make it possible
to download Solaris 9 iso images from their website after Solaris 10
is installed.
That is, if you haven't downloaded them before. Check a previous thread
on this list for a more thorough discussion.

Since I don't want to get Bill in trouble, I won't list the URL to download
the Solaris 9 9/04 iso images on the list, but I'll send you a private
email with the URLs
