Most vendor drivers for a particular O/S come with install instructions so I doubt you will be placing files into directories manually as you believe.

Get your hands on a wifi adapter with Solaris support from the vendor if you can. Get an internet connection onto your Solaris any way you can.
I have searched TPLINK,s support site and best I can tell they don't offer any other driver for my device than windows and maybe mac.
I guess I could carry the box next door and wire it to the modem. I'm sure she wouldn't mind, but I hate to ask. I get the idea she wants to be more than neighbors :s
I will look for a device Solaris supports, but I have to tell you I have very little income. Three of the four best PC's I have, I salvaged from the waste management center. All three are Dell OPTIPLEX's 330. The fourth is my work horse, Dell DIMENSION 8200x86. w/XPsp3

If you want wireless in UNIX, decide which UNIX you're going to run first, then find a card it's known to work with.
As I said I'm test driving Solaris. I don't know what the best alternative to MS is. I Like Ubuntu, but it doesn't like the platform I put it on. I had WIFI Internet from the first post install reboot. It works great for a hour+-. but then It gets sluggish and get a fading screen issue. My first impression of Solaris is, it looks professional whereas Ubuntu has a freeware look. I hate the quick launch on the left side of the screen and the absence of a task bar.

What is "junk consumer hardware"?
