I have a decent solaris box and came from a place where all the packages were proviced for me.  

In the real world if someone wants business packages ( sendmail,  Tomcat, Apache) where does one get them.

In the real world if someone wants packages for play (gtk-gnutella) where does one get them.

Are there a few good sites for Solaris Newbys ?  I am pretty much a linux person.  One thing I need to know more about is the eeprom ( go ).

Solaris shipped with sendmail + apache, but you can always get free packages (eg: gcc....etc, etc) from:

http://sunfreeware.com/

For the REAL Sun doc (Software + hardware):
http://docs.sun.com

You can find the answer for your other question such as OBP, where to start etc in:
