Summary: Solaris 9 Software Supplement CD

A few days ago I asked about the Solaris 9 Supplement CD and if it could
be downloaded. As it turns out, I didn't get any responses that I found
to be conclusive. 

I did get a few suggestions on where to download the Solaris 9 Companion
Software CD, but that is a different CD. One person did respond that since
it wasn't on the download list, that you can't download it. While it may
very will be the case that you can't download it (and since I didn't get
any responses saying this is where you can find it - this probably is the
case), I'm not sure if when dealing with the Sun website that I agree
with the logic because I have found downloads in places that one (or at
least I) would not have expected. One example of this is the Solaris 9
Companion Software CD which is not downloaded from the same exact page as
the rest of the Solaris 9 CDs. 

The Solaris 9 Companion Software CD can be found at:

Thanks to Alan Pee, Steve Wills, Paul Gress, Hichael Morton and anyone I
may have missed for trying to help me with this by responding to my

"Original" and "Additional Information" post follows.

Subject: Additional Information: Solaris 9 Software Supplement CD

Based on some of the replies I have received thus far, it appears that I
should have pointed out that the "Solaris 9 Software Supplement CD" is not
the same thing as the "Solaris 9 Companion Software CD." I should have
pointed that out, because at first I thought they may have been the same
thing. Anyway, the question bellow still stands.
