Hi,

Has anybody tried to use an external USB DVD-ROM on a SUN Fire 210 or
Sun Fire 240 under Solaris9?

Any Caveats/pitfalls?

We'd like to use one external DVD-drive for installation of several
machines instead of buying the internal "X7410A Slimline-DVD-ROM" for
plenty of $$.

TIA for your help,
-ewald

That won't work, because current boot proms do not support booting from
USB or Firewire mass storage devices. You must use SCSI or ATAPI devices.
