I need to download the latest Solaris 10 Patch Bundle for a sparc server via command line from the Oracle website.  Is it possible?  I already have an account with Oracle.  If it is possible, what are the commands to download the file from Oracle?

Yep, its possible, suing command "smpatch". Please look at man page on your Solaris server for details.
Personnally I haven't used this command.
