Downloaded and installed 2008.11. This time, I used VMWare to install the image on my laptop. The laptop has 2GB RAM and OpenSolaris is given 512 MB RAM.
BTW, if you want to pick up a copy of the live CD OpenSolaris-2008-11 (and avoid 700MB download), please let me know by email. You can pickup a copy in the Ameerpet/Maitrivanam area, by paying for the media (Rs 10 per CD.)
