Solaris 8

I am trying to get Solaris 8 Intel version to work with my comp, but every time i try to install it, it goes thru detecting my hardware then then when its supposed to fdisk it restarts. What do I do, whats wrong with it. I"m running a Gateway P4 system. Should there be any problem with that???

yeah i checked the hcl but it didn't say anything about the problem, I guess i'll just go bsd. I really wanted to get solaris working. Does HP-UX work on pc, intel chips.

Make sure you are using the software #1 cd and
not the installation. Also make sure you have
available disk space for a new partition.

Kam1su2, HP-UX will not work on the 32 bit Intel chipset, at the moment it will only run on HP's own PA-RISC chipset. It will, however, run on the new 64 bit Itanium chip from Intel, but I'm guessing that's going to be out of your price range Smilie
