Which Solaris 11 download package to use

Hi, One quick question: Which download package should I use to install the whole Solaris 11 OS? Can I use the Text Install package that is only 400 MB? or I need to use the Solaris 11 11/11 Repository Image package? I am in hurry to do it but somewhat confused here.

Thank you in advance!

"Oracle Solaris 11 11/11 can be installed in a number of different ways - from a hands free server based automated installation to a text or graphical installation (Live Media). Installation is easy and fast, and can be customized with additional software using the Oracle Solaris 11 network based package management system."

If you are going to install on x86 or VirtualBox, then easiest way is to use "Oracle Solaris 11 11/11 Live Media for x86".

I am going to install it on a Sun x4150 system. That is a x86 box. So the 'Live Media for x86' is the right choice?

Yes, it is.

Solaris 11 installation seems very simple, maybe too simple.

One question: What is the default filesystem Solaris 11 uses? I didn't see the selection. ZFS is what I want to use.

It is ZFS. Solaris 11 doesn't support booting from UFS anymore.
