<Speaking from ignorance>
Are there any Solaris 2.6 CDs cut after 9/99? If so, I suspect they might include any required patches.
</Speaking from ignorance>

I suspect any patches required will be able to be downloaded after a standard install - it may be that certain drivers are needed for some hardware on the board, but I would hope SCSI & Net will be supported on the base disk, allowing you to get any needed patches installed after an initial install...

Just a thought, be sure and report back (BTW, Solaris 10 runs fine on my Netra T 105, but I'm sure you have a business need to load Solaris 2.6 ;^)
