    Well until then, I'm going to have 2 on 1 machine, rather than purchasing VM or whatever, I'm going to try the Sun Microsystem one VirtualBox

    I don't know how it's going to pan out, will let you know. Anyone else been able to use it? without going off topic.

    I wonder if DM will work with Solaris? worth trying.

    I'm currently downloading a trial of Win 7.

    Solaris is supposed to be pretty compatible with a lot of stuff, but who knows for sure?

    Well, here goes, guess I'm gonna d'load Solaris to try, Can have a few partitions with Virtual Machine, and doesn't take too much room, so will see.

    Cool , let me know what happens. Haven't been out much the last couple weeks due to jury duty so even shopping for comp. parts is impossible. (G5 needs a hard drive and monitor....)

    Wow, Hope it's an interesting trial, won't ask you about it, I guess you can't speak about it.

    Just looking at Sun website They have a version of Solaris 10 for the Virtual Box which is half the size, requires 5gb rather than 10, just Downloading now.

    Will let you know how it goes.
