For a while, Sun had a webpage from which you could obtain Solaris 7 (or
was it 6?) free, and last time I looked it was possible to obtain Solaris 8
similarly (but that won't run on the older architectures). I'm sure it's
been mentioned here before; look in the list archives. I'd try asking on
comp.sys.sun et al for a copy.
