[lug] Solaris & Linux

I installed Solaris/x86 over the weekend and as far as I can tell it is just
like the 'real thing'.  Unfortunately, it didn't have any real drivers for
my video card (Riva TNT), so I had to settle for vga and the tulip drivers
didn't work on my Linksys card.  So Solaris/x86 went away.  There are few to
no drivers available out there for Intel hardware, so check the HCL on Sun's
site carefully before you install.  BTW, they will send you Solaris/x86 for
something like $10.00 if you look around carefully on their site.
