Problem in locale installation through solaris 10 cds

Dear All

I am in a problem where i have to install en_us locale through solaris 10 05/08 which is in 5 cds as I download from internet. when I use the following command after putting disk 1 of solaris 10

loceladm -a en_us -d /cdrom/cdrom0/s0/Solaris_10/Product

It install few packages but cann't able to get all the packeges required by en_us locale in one cd. and didn't automatically ask for other disks of Solaris 10.How will i install all the packages for loacle en_us

I also want to know what all locale required by oracle 10g installation. By default only posix is install at installation time if i do installation through null modem cable. Is POSIX locale is enought for Oracle 10g installation

installing the locale for en_US (north america) usually spans in several disks, so during the installation, it should ask you next CD (ex: solaris2, solaris3, etc...) Do you get any messages when u execute above command? Can you post it?

Output after installing disk1 of Solaris 10 is

Please enter the path to this image/disk, or enter 'q' to quit:
(if this image is on CD-ROM, please mount the disk and give the path to the CD-ROM drive e.g. /cdrom/cdrom0)

Above your post (from the message), does it say something like below:

Checking for a solaris2 image
No solaris2 image has been found in
Then followed by your message?
It may be solaris2, solaris3 or solaris4... what this means is that it's asking for next CD (solaris2 = Solaris installation CD 2, solaris3 = Solaris installation CD 3, etc...).
Put your solaris 2 (or requested) CD in the CD-Rom drive and type


and hit Enter. Then it should continue the installation. It may say that it can't find an image but if you insert the right CD, just give it a few moment to recognize the CD and type that and hit enter. It should go through.
