SunOS 5.6

Hi,

I called Sun and they said they no longer sell SunOS 5.6. I desperately need a CD-ROM of the install CD to perform maintenance work on a server.

Does anyone know where to get one or know someone who can make me a copy?

Why do you need solaris 2.6? much work can be done regardless of the solaris version of the boot cd.

I have a 2.6 cd hardware release 3/98.

I have a nero image of it. can I upload it some where ?
Then you can burn it with nero burner or similar software able to read a nero image. Or use anytoISO program to convert it.

Regards
Jan

You CAN use a Solaris 8 CD to do maintenance on a Solaris 5.6
