I don't like to second guess Jerry since he is usually (always?) right on
the money when it comes to Solaris but AFAIK S11 Express was discontinued
right affter S11 went live and S11 Express was promptly pulled from Oracle's
servers (as in there is no source to download it from). S11 pulled out all
the sun4u support that S11 still had. In the very first release of S11...
When you say updates- I guess you meant updates _at that time_? Again AFAIK
it is not possible to update S11 Express with any of the S11 updates.
