I have a feeling that it may not work, SUN sparc based systems are quite picky hardware wise.

You can however, also download a 5CD version of Solaris 10 for older systems.

You guys do know what an Ultra 10 is? It's not an X86 based system, completely proprietary sun hardware.

I've had no luck replacing IDE drives in completely proprietary hardware devices before.
