Chapter 1

Planning for a Oracle Solaris Installation From CD or DVD Media (Tasks)

This book describes how to use CD or DVD media to install the Oracle Solaris operating system (OS) on a nonnetworked system. You can install either a UFS-based file system or a ZFS-based root pool.

Note - This chapter provides planning information for installing a UFS root (/) file system and some planning information for a ZFS root pool.

This chapter describes the preparations for completing a successful installation, including the sections described below. The following chapter describes each step in an installation for SPARC systems and an installation for x86 systems.

Note - This book uses the term slice, but some Oracle Solaris documentation and programs might refer to a slice as a partition. To avoid confusion, this book distinguishes between fdisk partitions (which are supported only in Oracle Solaris for x86 based systems) and the divisions within the fdisk partition, which might be called slices or partitions.
