I am a network admin at a local community college in San Diego. I have been tasked with creating a multi-purpose lab that will house about 30+ computers. This computer lab is used for many different classes from basic keyboarding to advanced CISCO courses. In the past I have had a multi-boot system using GRUB with LINUX/WIN98/NT/XP. This has worked great for quite awhile now. Next semester they want to add a Solaris UNIX class as part of the CISCO course curriculum to teach the CDE interface. Can GRUB be used to boot a Solaris 8 UNIX partition? If so can you point me in the right direction for some documentation? All I am finding online so far are "I have never used GRUB to boot Solaris...." type docs. I am a big GRUB fan and would like to continue to use it in my classrooms. Thanks in advance for your help.

Solaris 8 7/01 (for x86) chainloads ok.
In my case, it goes with
root(hd1,1) (second hardrive, second partition)
chainload +1
It's the active partition in that hd. Then I get the blue menu of solaris. Remember to keep the partition of solaris below the 1024th cilinder (or refuses to install, in my case).
Good luck.
