Fortunately, you didn't listen to the wrong people.
Large filesystems have been supported since Solaris 2.0, but there
have been quirks. Solaris 2.3 supported them well, it's the
earliest OS I remember using them on.
The 2.3 to 2.4 upgrade had some trouble with those large partitions,
but hey, you should upgrade to 2.5 now anyway.
