1. Log in to the installed or updated system and become superuser:

Code:
su

2. Insert the CD that contains the software you want to add to the system into the CD-ROM drive attached to the system. Volume Manager automatically mounts the CD.
3. Note the directory path to the software on the CD you want to add.
4. Add one or more packages to the system:

Code:
# /usr/sbin/pkgadd -d device_name pkgid

5. use the pkgchk(1) command to verify that the package is installed correctly:

Code:
# /usr/sbin/pkgchk -v pkgid

this guide from oracle site.

I can't post links, google search "Solaris 8 install package from cd"
