Is there development going on which will provide us with a driver
which can deal with Solaris 2.4, 2.5, and 2.5.1 disks? Not just
partitions, or filesystems. I would like to be able to install a
Solaris disk in my PC and get Linux to mount it. I have a real need to
be doing interesting things to such disks with cheap old PC hardware. We
have a lot of both of them.
