I decided to stick with Solaris 8 on that machine (it's for testing  
anyway), and was able to patch the firmware on the controller and  
apply a patch update from Sun as well.  Because it's just a test box,  
I made a RAID 0 with 8x18G 10,000RPM disks.  Two days of pounding and  
it was still fine, so I'm comfortable with it in the current setup.

Actually, with that setup, an 18G 10K boot disk, a 9G dedicated swap  
disk, 4G of RAM, and 4x400MHz/4M CPUs, it screams.  I'd almost  
forgotten how "light" Solaris 8 is.  (But I haven't forgotten how  
robust - my personal best uptime is with a Sol 8 box - just under  
1000 days, and the killer was a 5-hour power outage that drained the  
UPS it was on.)
