IA: Booting From CD-ROM Without the Solaris Boot Diskette

You can boot the Solaris 8 (Intel Platform Edition) directly from the locally attached CD-ROM without the Solaris boot diskette on IA based systems that support this feature.

The Solaris boot diskette is still available for the systems that do not support this feature.

See Solaris 8 (Intel Platform Edition) Installation Guide for information on booting IA based systems with or without the boot diskette.
