Hi Chip

I think your problem would be solved by downloading the FREE (yupp, free) version of Solaris from in the software section I beleive. (It is compatible with a PC.) This would be the best solution to your problem. I'm rather suprised that no one has answered you about this earlier.... Well I guess they didn't know about this. If you have a slower form of connection however (yeah right... a company with a low connection. hahaha) then you can order the CDs that you will need for a modest amount.

I hope this little info has helped you on a little on the road to become a better admin. Or at least enlightened you in some way.
