No question, 9GB goes pretty fairly far on Solaris, even still on
Solaris 10.  At least, until you start loading it up with your own data.  

I think my e250 has more than 10 gigs free of its's 18 gig boot drive,
where all software is loaded.  Of course, the 200 gig raid attached to
it is almost full, but none of that is software for the e250 (except for
the archives of the sun freeware website for solaris 8, 9, and 10).
