OpenSolaris 2008.11

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.

Experimented with different networking options like Host only, Bridged, etc. based on the network environment in which I am running this installation. Everything is working clean and fine. The full screen mode (of VMware server console) is the real workable mode for this installation. The VM boots real fast.

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.)
