Solaris 8 Operating Environment Installations

The Solaris OE version 8 does not fit onto a single compact disc (CD); however, you can use the new Solaris Web Start software installation procedure to change CDs during the installation process. Previous installation procedures that use JumpStart™ software and interactive installation are available and have been updated to accommodate the multiple CDs required for a full Solaris 8 OE installation.

You can install the Solaris 8 OE using any of the following procedures:

  • Solaris Web Start software

  • JumpStart software

  • Interactive installation

Each of these procedures can be used with local media (a CD) or with a JumpStart installation server over the network.
