Install only what you need (and update frequently) seems the best defense, after you decide it MUST be connected to the internet.

Well, I'm not sure why you want to "combat" LAMP, but all the components you desire are available in the Solaris 10 distribution and Companion DVD iso files (Solaris 10 Companion DVD included PHP, MySQL, and I believe Postgres is also available). Of course, you may want/require to compile everything yourself (either for security or other reasons), but realize the software is available pre-built from Sun if you like...

I plan on making a SAMP box (Solaris, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) out of an older Netra w/1 Gig of RAM, 440 MHz CPU, and SCSI HDs, but I Haven't Gotten Around To It Yet.(tm)
