I'm new to Solaris 9, never used a Sun Blade 100 and am going to smash the Sun Type 7 keyboard. Yes, my tolerance is low today.
My goal is to use the Type 7 keyboard with the Sun Blade 100 running Solaris 9.
I was only able to install Solaris 9 by swapping keyboards with a Dell PC because when I had Sun's own Model Type 7 Keyboard plugged in to the Blade 100 the key mappings were messed up.
For example, when I'm using Solaris 9 with the Blade 100 and the Model 7 keyboard and press the letter:
"f" I get "4f"
"g" I get "^[[13~g"
"i" I get "^[[18~i"
and so on...
When I press the "Enter" key I get
^[[2~: not found
Question 1: What is it I don't know about Solaris 9, the Sun Blade 100 and Sun's Model 7 keyboard? How do I fix the keyboard mapping? I am new to Solaris 9 and keyboard problems.
Question 2: How do I use a non Sun keyboard, in other words a keyboard without the "Stop" key, to tell Solaris to boot from the friggin CD?
Question 3: How do I access the BIOS of the Blade 100 and tell it to boot from the CD/DVD?
