I have a Toshiba Satellite 110CS notebook and an Adaptec APA-358 (not 348) parallel to SCSI adapter (plus an external SCSI CDROM).  I have tried the 2.5 notebook supplement but it doesn't recognise the APA-358.  Can I install 2.5 with this setup bearing in mind that I do not have network access to a Solaris machine (although I do to a Linux box and an NT server box - both with CDROMs)?

Yes you can by installing linux on the laptop with NFS then mount the cd-rom localyy (ie the cd on the remote linux box). You will nedd to use NFS to do this. Then you can install Solaris without too many probs in this way,
