I am looking to further my Oracle knowledge by running it under another OS [the above]. I have a spare laptop which I want to run the above on. As this is a 64 bit OS do I need a 64 bit machine to run it? Just out of interest will Sparc run on this laptop or just intel?

Ummm...I don't think Solaris v9 X86 includes 64-bit support. I might be wrong, but as I recall, the only version of Solaris that supports 64-bit is the Sparc versions.

Hi,
 I actually contacted a 'seller' of the OS and they informed me my laptop should be able to run 9.

Regards,
