Thanks to all who responded to my question on the CD-ROM.

> Does anybody know how to get individual release directories and/or files off
> the Solaris OS distribution on CD-ROM? or do I always have to boot from it and
> re-run the install procedure? (I have Solaris 1.1 release)

For those of you who are also wondering:

just mount the CD with the following command:
mount -r -t hsfs /dev/sr0 /cdrom (the `-t hsfs' is very important)
and tar the desired files.

or use `add_services'. (see manpage)

note: The Solaris 2.x release differs a bit.

Thanks again,
