Not very often do I want to throw a book away, but I got a small pile of Solaris administration books hoping to finally be able to solve this riddle -- of how to make this crapware go. Well, the books are crapware for the most part. They wave hands at actually doing anything while coping and pasting man page documentation at you and introducing you to the basics of shell. None of these have almost anything to do with Solaris. So, in the interest of being able to chuck these, I'm compiling the few useful tidbits I can find in them, here. Normally I don't buy any book I can digest in one sitting at a bookstore/coffee shop like B&N (and then often pay retail price if I find myself white knuckle clutching the thing when I have to go), but I got these from half.com, so they came sight unseen. Here goes.
