solaris 8, 9, 10 (& maybe 7) will boot.

in the old days, a partition could reach 100" full.
this did not permit anything to be written to the filesystem.
this was changed several years ago so that solaris would boot.

sun now recommends a / and a swap for disks.

this is probably a stupid question,  but what happens if the root
directory fills up.  I understand that willnot be bootable. Curious as
to exactly why.
