1. Problem burning solaris9 install-CD (sparc)

Hi,

I downloaded the solaris 9 CDs from sun.com (sparc architecture).

Using the documented procedure, I was able to burn all the CDs smoothly,
except for the install CD.

The install CD burned w/o any error, but on browsing the burned CD I only
see 5 or 6 small script files (appr. 200k only) which
must be wrong given the image is about 600MB.

I used Nero 6 (DAO/96) under WinXP, but I don't think it is the burning,
because when I use an "ISO-explorer" I only can see those 5-6 files.

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Regards,
Alexander

PS: Do I really need the install-CD? IIRC I only needed SW1 and SW2 for an
Sol-8 installation.
