lx Branded Zone Installation (Task Map)

For Instructions
Obtain the Linux achives.
Before you can install the lx branded zone, you must first obtain the Linux archives.
Install a configured lx branded zone.
Install a zone that is in the configured state.
(Optional) Install a subset of the available packages.
When installing from CD or ISO images, you can install a subset of the packages on the install media.
(Optional) Enable networking in the zone.
Networking is disabled by default and must be enabled if you want this functionality.
Obtain the universally unique identifier (UUID) for the zone.
This separate identifier, assigned when the zone is installed, is an alternate way to identify a zone.
(Optional) Transition an installed zone to the ready state.
You can skip this procedure if you want to boot the zone and use it immediately.
Boot an lx branded zone.
Booting a zone places the zone in the running state. A zone can be booted from the ready state or from the installed state.
Boot a zone in single-user mode.
Boots only to milestone svc:/milestone/single-user:default. This milestone is equivalent to init level s. See the init(1M) and svc.startd(1M) man pages.
