Alternately, if you have an external SCSI drive to plug into the SPARCBOOK,
you can make filesystems on that, use ufsdump piped to ufsrestore, or find
and cpio, to copy everything over to it, then run installboot to make it
bootable, then make new partitions on your internal drive, make new filesystems,
and copy everything back.
If your internal disk is small, consider that if you don't mind losing NCE,
you could obtain a Solaris-2.6 CDROM, the Tadpole 2.6 packaged and patches,
then when you re-install you don't need a separate suspend partition.
