Solaris 2.5.1 on PPC

I have just recently completed an upgrade of several PPC 604 machines to Solaris 2.5.1 but there is one machine I am wary of. It is an IBM PowerPC 601 and I wich to upgrade but I'm not sure whether the Solaris will work ok on this.

The problem lies with the fact that once I do the upgrade, I cannot go back as I do not have the original media to install from.

Has anyone got any comments on this? Will the Solaris work?

Get another drive and leave the old one untouched.  If the installation works properly on the fresh drive, then run it in place for some testing and then wipe the old drive and install on it if you wish.  

This is the only safe way.

Can't you get an external disk and leave the original system untouched?
