I’ll second Jon‘s assessment that Sun really should put some reasonable cable adapters in the box, as the the bundle of adapters necessary to make a null modem connection to the box is ridiculously out of scale (I’ll get a picture soon).
I’m getting the application environment put together, which has turned out easier than expected thanks to the convenient packages from Blastwave.org. The box came with Solaris 10 installed, and after a quick installation and configuration of
pkg-get I was happily installing Apache, MySQL, and PHP as simply as typing
pkg-get -i apache.
