Does anyone know what these partitions are that are mounted? Is it safe to
unmount them?
I am running Solaris 8. Thanks in advance!

Don't unmount them unless you want to break your system.  They do no
harm and provide essential system services.  (/etc/mnttab provides
mnttab information directly from the kernel, removing the problems older
systems had with keeping a text file up to date.  /var/run is a security
enhancement, that provides a /tmp like file system for root processes
without opening them to the many attacks possible in /tmp.)

Leave 'em, they're needed.
