How can I view eastern character set under Sun Solaris 2.6 x86

    I'm a Chinese, I installed a Sun Solaris 2.6 x86, but I can not view
and input my native language character set. I want to view and input
Tranditional  Chinese(BIG-5) and Simplified Chinese(GB2312) . How should
I setup up Sun Solaris, where can  I get Chinese Fonts files and how to
install them under Sun Solaris?

Thanks in advance!


1. can't read Solaris 2.6 x86 hard disk on Solaris 2.6 Ultra-1 ?!?

I was going to use this hard drive to move large files from my
Ultra to my Pentium PC for CD-R backup, but upon "boot -r" on
the Ultra I saw an error about "invalid geometry" on sd3, the
drive I had formatted on my PC to be ufs.  And now of course
I can't even "prtvtoc" this disk ("Unable to read Disk geometry"),
so mounting it is seemingly out of the question.

What's the problem?  Was I naive to assume the a ufs on a Solaris
system would be the same regardless of CPU type?  I really don't
want to use Ethernet to transmit potentially gigabytes of data
on a regular basis :-(...

Please reply via email (and post here, of course), as I don't
get a chance to keep up with the newsgroup as regularly as I
would wish.  Thanks.
