HELP!.. HELP!!.... HELP!!! - Sun Solaris 8 for Sparc





turbosquid
I am in desperate need of some help installing solaris my Sun 'UltraSparc' system.
I had 'Solaris 8' install cd's but during my house move a while back i lost them along with a Sun network card and some other bits and pieces.
The network card is no problem as i already have a 4 port installed, My real problem is that i can not re-install 'Solaris 8' due to the missing CD's. Mad
So now i have a sun box with no OS sitting idle Crying or Very sad and worst still i need it to host our intranet.

Now for the begging... Sun Engineers, Sun Users, Frihosters, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.

I really need 'Solaris 8' install cd's for sparc.

If anyone can help me out here i would be eternally grateful.

Please email me:- turbosquid_100@yahoo.com

Nope you can't download it, the area that you linked to above is basically addons to the solaris OS.

Only version 10 of the solaris os is available for download, i already have version 10, but it's really designed to run on more modern sun hardware. My Ultrasparc is a little old for running the New V10 solaris OS. Thats why i need 'Solaris 8'...

Please Wink
