Managing multipe boot environments w/ snapshots on Solaris 10 and 11

I want to make a snapshot of the boot environment once a week.  I want to keep three weeks worth.  It looks like I can do this with the auto-snapshot service with Solaris 11, but I can't find it on 10.  Does anyone have something similar already set up?  I would like to do it with a cron job and ksh script if the service won't run on Solaris 10.

Thanks in advance,
David

Will that work for ZFS though?  It says that's for UFS.

For ZFS, the command is "zfs snapshot", please see this link:

Sorry, I probably wasn't clear.  I can do the snapshots, I was wondering if anyone had devised a script or process for managing the snapshots. Something that would make a snapshot of the rpool once a week and keep a running 3 copies. So it would delete the oldest one, and make a new one, not necessarily in that order.  I know Solaris 11 has the auto-snapshot package, but I don't think I can get it on 10 so it looks like I'll be scripting it unless someone has already invented the wheel.

Ganjos, I'm going to end up using time-slider and auto-snapshot.  Your link gave me some good info though.  Thanks.
