So has anybody installed Solaris 8 successfully. I have a Compaq AP500,
listed in Sol7 and Sol8 HCLs, which installs easily Solaris 7. However,
Solaris 8 is proving to be a major headache. I've tried both WebStart
and Interactive installs, I've tried creating two fdisk partitions...
Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
