Now that Sun has discontinued x86 downloads, does anyone know of any URLs where I can download it?

Thanks for the input, but I'm looking for the 10/01 release of Solaris 8 x86 (or the Solaris 9 x86 beta).  I know I could buy it for $45, but why spend money on something that's free?

I'm with you UKWizard.  I just increased it to 200.  Now all we need is someone to take the initiative to put the media on an ftp site.

UKWizard,
I think I found an ftp site.  I'm downloading it now, so after several hours, I'll know for sure.

I'd be willing to boost the points to 500 if someone could send me a URL for Solaris 9 x86.

So I guess it didnt work ?

Take it easy, I'll set up an ftpserver with the X86-S9.
Hopefully it will be done tomorrow evening ( european time)

Need to get wu-ftp going on my firewall.
I let you know when it is done

Finally guys. Have been struggling with wu-ftp most of the day. What a piece of sh-t.

Anyway, the ftpserver is up and for at limited time only you can get the Solaris 9 beta for the X86 platform.

It works, Im running it.

Make sure you have at least 850Mb free space.
README explains the setup

Have fun, mail me if there is a problem

Besky,
I'll create another question for the additional 200 points.  Once you reply to this, I'll award the points to you and let you know the other question.  Thanks!!
