... but the name "Solaris" is an after-the-fact invention
for many of these releases; I don't see any mention of Solaris
in my 4.1.1 Rev. B CDs or docs. Thanks for clearing up the
version numbers mess.

It does, thanks. So, could anyone make ISO copies of the
SUNBIN releases of the two versions above and put them
on the web?

I did not remember 4.1.4 as being released that late, though
I know for sure that I was using it in '95 and early '96.
