Solaris Transition Guide

Using the SunOS Release 4 Work Environment With the Solaris Software

The SunOS release 5.7 software can use the old SunOS release 4 system files and initialization files such as .login, .cshrc, and.profile to re-create the look and feel of the SunOS release 4 work environment. Many of these SunOS release 4 files can be converted, or used as they are, and executed easily.

The installation process in Chapter 3, Converting a SunOS Release 4 System to the Solaris 7 Environment, explains how to re-create the SunOS release 4 environment within the Solaris 7 operating environment.
