I'm away from my system, but I installed 111952-03 and it took me to 4.0.18,
verified by 'prtcfg -V'
I downloaded the patch from a random server on the Internet that I found by
googling the patch name '111952-03.zip'.
It seems better - the update ran under Solaris 10 without incident, and just
because I did a 'touch .reconfigure' on the off-chance something changed...
The system appears fine, if you have any other questions don't hesitate to
