Install Solaris 10 by using the ISO file

Hi Gurus

Recently i had download the ISO installer (sol-10-u8-ga-sparc-dvd.iso) for Solaris 10.

And i ftp to a Server.

May i know is it possible to install the Solaris by using this ISO file directly (not using network)?

Burn it to DVD and use it. If you're installing on vBox, then you may just mount the iSO. If you're installing on an x86 machine and don't have any DVD, you can install Alcohol120% and mount it using as a virtual drive.
