What to look for in my sun box if I'm new to this?


I just recently purchased an older Ultra 5 with Solaris 8 equiped with NT. I'm not necessarily new to the unix world but this is the first time I've had my own box. I'm used to Unix in the working environment.

So with that said...

Are there any specific files I should be looking for... anything specific I should do or look at?

I think I just need a push in the right direction...

Thanks for looking...

I would suggest playing with the existing OS for a while, but at some point you will probably want to reinstall Solaris.

I'm not really sure where to start...

I want to poke around......
