We are talking about a SCSI CDRW, right? I don't know of a way to make an IDE drive work on Solaris.

I've had good luck with the Yamaha CDRW drives and I use Jorg Schilling's mkisofs and cdrecord software. See http://www.fokus.gmd.de/research/cc/glone/employees/joerg.schilling/private/

Installation is pretty easy. Connect the drive to the SCSI chain using an open ID and make sure that it's visible to the boot prom's probe-scsi. Then use 'boot -r' to do a re-configuration boot. Build and install the software per Jorg's instructions and you are good to go. Just remmeber to, per the instructions, disable vold for the CDRW.
