Hi - a new version of my cookbook for configuring DLT's
on Solaris 1.x and 2.x is now avaialable by anon ftp
from ugle.unit.no in /info/unix/DLT_on_Sun.txt and also
by request pr email.

This is a major rewrite and as it's rather large I do just
include the index below.

Comments and suggestions for improvement are welcomed.

Sun are soon to start reselling the 4000 with support in
2.4; if anyone has inforly  on Sun's recommendations (st.conf?)
I would be grateful if you mailed it to me.

Follow up to comp.unix.solaris please or email me.

1. Non public-domain version of ksh for SunOS 4.1.x
