Reginald, in June 2005 I moved all of my systems from Solaros 10 FCS
to Nevada 30 or where it was at that time.
Sorry, I didn't try Solaris 10 since then. Because so many
improvements flew into Nevada, it is hard to count them.

Maybe you are right or not, I have little experience with Solaris 10,
only half a year.
But the rmformat vesus format question: I still doubt Sun's official
statements about that.
Nevertheless, as I have no Sol10 box at hand, I cannot verify this. So
ok, maybe.

Well, no problem.
