I have the SPARC/x86 version of Solaris (yes, the one CD has both SPARC and x86 versions on it and it's legitimate).  I cannot install the x86 version using the Driver Update diskettes downloaded from the Access1 site. (I think these disks are meant for the x86 version only).  Is anyone familiar with this?
