Log in the Opensolaris Live CD and run "zpool import", the literature is
very fast to read. Just follow the instructions.
"zpool import --help" will list your options,

You can read this if you don't feel like reading at the terminal, just check
the import sections.

It is a very simple process. Just read carefully.
Please ask if you have some questions

I don't think you need to upgrade the pool, so if it ask you to do so, just
say no... (I am not even sure if this happens at all, but just in case)
