Planning for a Solaris Installation From CD or DVD Media (Tasks)
This book describes how to use CD or DVD media to install
the SolarisTM Operating System (Solaris OS) on a nonnetworked system.
This chapter describes the preparations for completing a successful installation, including the sections
described below. The following chapter describes each step in an installation for SPARC
systems and an installation for x86 systems.
Note - This book uses the term slice, but some Solaris documentation and programs might
refer to a slice as a partition. To avoid confusion, this book distinguishes
between fdisk partitions (which are supported only in Solaris for x86 based
systems) and the divisions within the Solaris fdisk partition, which might be called slices
