The Netra 440 Server Installation Guide provides instructions, some background information, and reference material to help you install a new Netratrademark 440 server. Instructions in most of the document assume that a system administrator who is experienced with the Solaristrademark Operating System (Solaris OS) is performing the installation. However, you do not need Solaris OS experience to follow instructions in Chapter 3, which detail the installation of the Netra 440 server into a rack.
