      Topic:  Evolution of the Solaris Installer Technology

    Speaker:  Dave Miner,
              Sr. Solaris Engineer,
              Sun Microsystems / Solaris Engineering  <>



    Unigroup's October 2009 meeting will be our second meeting at
    Cooper Union's new Engineering building, which is located on the
    East side of Cooper Square and 1-2 blocks South-East of the old
    Engineering building (which is now closed).

    We had a great meeting room for our first meeting at Cooper's
    new building, however, due to meeting room conflicts, we are
    currently scheduled to meet in Room 616 (6th Floor)... but keep
    an eye out for changes.  This space is reported to be small, and
    Cooper was attempting to find a larger room for us.

    Our October 2009 meeting will be a special Joint Meeting with the
    NYCOSUG - NYC OpenSolaris Group, and as such, non-member meeting
    fees will be waived (ie. FREE meeting) for this special meeting.

    Upcoming Unigroup meetings:
      19-NOV-2009: To-be-announced.  A top hardware vendor may
                   present the latest in x86 Computer Architecture.

    Topic: Evolution of the Solaris Installer Technology

    Brief Introduction:

    This will be a discussion (vs. a typical one-way presentation) on
    the topic of Solaris installer technologies and evolution thereof,
    with a focus on "what's new" in recent work.  Of interest to Sun,
    in particular, are the expectations and desired-level
    functionality that customers and community want to see implemented.

    Fee Schedule:

    Unigroup is a Professional Technical Organization and User Group,
    and its members pay a yearly membership fee.  For Unigroup members,
    there is usually no additional charges (ie. no meeting fees) during
    their membership year.  Non-members who wish to attend Unigroup
    meetings are usually required to pay a "Single Meeting Fee".

        Yearly Membership (includes all meetings):      $ 50.00
        Student Yearly Membership (with current! ID):   $ 25.00
        Non-Member Single Meeting:                      $ 20.00
        Non-Member Student Single Meeting (with! ID):   $  5.00

      * Payment Methods: Cash, Check, American Express.

      ! Students: We are looking for proof that you are
        currently enrolled in classes (rather than working
        full-time), and as such, your Student ID should show
        a CURRENT date.  We have been presented Student IDs
        containing NO dates whatsoever, and in the
        current environment, perpetual/non-expiring access
        to university facilities just does not feel right.
        If your ID contains no date, please bring
        additional proof of current enrollment.  Thanks,

    NOTE: Simply receiving Unigroup Email Announcements does
          NOT indicate membership in Unigroup.

    includes "wraps" such as turkey, roast beef, chicken, tuna
    and grilled vegetables as well as assorted salads (potato,
