Re: sun solaris on dl 380 g6 servers

1) download drivers from aforementioned place(s)

2) burn the .iso image for the driver(s) onto CD(s) or prepare to point the server's iLO's virtual media at them

3) boot the Solaris install CD

4) watch like a hawk. when it gives you the option to load drivers, take it. it will prompt you to load the media with the drivers

5) once you have loaded the requisit driver(s) (cpqarry is probably all you need with Sol10U8) you return to the install media and procede with a regular Solaris install.

Be patient. It can take quite some time.
