December 22, 2005
You got your hands on the latest version of Sun Solaris DVD/CDs and are raring to install it on your machine. But you have some nagging doubts because this is the first time you are installing this OS and you need some hand holding.

Ifeyinwa Okoye an intern working at Sun Microsystem has put together a good concise guide on this subject where he pursues the steps to be taken for installing Microsoft Windows, Fedora and Sun Solaris on a laptop. He has used Power Quest's Partition Magic for creating the necessary partitions (3 primary partitions and an extended partition) on his hard disk (though you may also use fdisk) . Other than partitioning ones hard disk, he also walks through all the steps taken while installing Solaris 10.
