3. How do I add a locale after installing the Base Product?

Solaris 10 added the new localeadm command line utility. It allows you to add support for specific geographic regions. Please take a look at the man page.
For Solaris 7, 8 & 9 it requires that you pkgadd the right packages. For more details, including package lists, please see the Solaris 9, Solaris 8 and Solaris 7 pages
