I think it's Solaris 8 only now (it was Solaris 7 when I got it), which
doesn't run on a Sparc 2. More importantly you either need to download it
or spend $75 for the media kit, as far as I know, there isn't a way to get
it for $20 anymore (but hey I might be wrong).

Try eBay. I got my copy of Solaris 8 still sealed in the box for about $60,
which beats getting it from Sun. Remember Solaris is now free for use on
systems with up to 8 CPU's (I don't know if this includes older versions of
the OS or only Solaris 8).
