Long answer:

       Solaris X86 (intel) is a 32 bit OS
       Soaris 7 or newer can Support 64bit, and it depents on the CPU.

       For Sun Sparc hardware, everything after ultra SPARC II will handle the 64 bit version
       of the OS. Some of the UltraSparc support 64 bit with the current NVRAM code loaded .
       the older SPACR (eg Sparc 5, 20...) are 32 bit.

       to find out your CPU type, type in:
       /usr/platform/`uname -m`/sbin/prtdiag
