I don't but there are a lot of alternatives.. *cough*megaupload*cough*
Could someone please at least give us md5sum of .iso? that way if we ever find it, we could check authenticity..

Ebay currently has several Solaris 8 media kits for sale. Both Intel and Sparc. Lowest price I see is $29.00

unfortunately ebay is not an option here, as most sellers require paypal and some even verified paypal address.
