Please excuse a Unix boob!

I need to get en_US locale installed on a Solaris 8 machine I have CD that are not terribly close but possible as a last resort.

Can someone explain what the heck I can do?

Thanks

A simple egrep "en\_US" /var/sadm/install/contents would indicate that the following packages are relevant to your request:

SUNWeuluf
SUNWulcf
SUNWnamow
SUNWnamox
SUNWnamos
SUNWeuodf

Simply run a pkgadd to install these packages.
