Anyone know anything about Solaris OS

Hi, in my quest to find the perfect OS I got a copy of Sun Solaris 8, for FREE!!!!
I am trying to load it onto my lapper.
Problem is , when i get to the pick language the whole thing goes pear shaped.
I press the 1 key for English and nothin, before that the keyboard is workin OK .
I've tried a few times , no success.
Now i know why its FREE!!

I need advice from someone who has the low down on this OS the Sun site is a bit vague on installing , and the Sun forum is offline.

I would like to get this baby up and running.

I need some generall advice and advice as to why i can not load on to my laptop.

Any help ?

hi not to sure about your particular problem but i got a copy of solairs and was advised to not instal it but rather to instal linux instead. this i did and installed mandrake 9 and i have never looked back, i have even scrapped windows to use mandrake all the time. it is the perfect os!
