Well, JDS might be in our future, but I thought that was only available 
with Solaris 10 for free.  Rather, we are running Solaris 9 and 
migrating to GNOME for it's desktop and applications like gaim.  But, 
let me get this straight.  From blastwave, you don't just grab gaim. 
You have to get all of the dependencies as well, right?  By my 
recollection, that would be the 9 packages that I mentioned earlier (not 
including GNOME or gaim).  But, blastwave lists 24!  However, some of 
these may be already installed as part of the Companion CD.  Of course, 
if this is all automated, like apt-get, then who cares.  However, that's 
not my understanding of blastwave.  Please let me know if I'm wrong.
