I recently got a sun sparcserver 5 to play around with and to practice unix on. When I got it, it currently has solaris 2.5.1 installed from the boot sequence. This is a server without a video output, so i'm using a serial terminal. Also it doesn't have a floppy or cd drive. I was wondering how it might be possible to circumvent the password on solaris in this case or how i should go about installing another distribution, in which case i was considering using netbsd. Please help me.
well even though it doesn't have a floppy drive, i figure that i can put one in, since when i was looking inside of it i did see the floppy header. I can use a std pc floppy drive right? I was somewhat hoping to salvage this install of solaris because i don't have the install cds for any copy of solaris. So how do I make a boot disk?
