Could you just find an Ultra-2 to install it on .... the copy the whole thing over ?? Does
the software detect system types on run-time or at install only ?? I don't think you could
change that, however try to contact Sun's support line or contact the software vendor
might help.

which command is used to return the requested information?
if it's done by uname, just rename uname, by an own made script .
After installation just put the original uname back in place.
if it's done via a system call, it's much harder to do.
