Sun Solaris 10: How do I create a bootup disc? The Sun website confuses me

Hey there,

I am starting a Computer Science Foundation year at the end of this month and am trying to get a little bit ahead of the game. I have always wanted to learn Unix and am currently struggling with creating a boot disc to run Solaris (I have chosen to study this) from as opposed to installing it on the computer

I have searched google, and read through lots of library books on Unix but they are seem to lack a comprehensive installation guide for dummys like me!

I would be greatful for any advice which someone who has been through it all could contribute and thank you!

Ben
