heh ?

Voyager uses 2.5" SCSI hard drives (like early Apple laptops did).

As far as I know, no special version of Solaris is needed.  I think
Voyager came out in the 2.5 days... so there might be a release of
2.5 that added the hw support for Voyager... (this was quite usual
for Sun to spin HW 11/93 release, HW 1/94 release, etc).  I think
2.6 and up (till whenever they dropped support for Voyager) should
have all the support on the regular OS CD.  I'm pretty sure 2.6,
and 7 works on Voyager... I don't know about 8 or 9.
