nope. i'm gonna test what i can on my sparc, but that's probably a a
couple of days or so away at best. and i never got the emulation
working satisfactorially, so that's an added obstacle. as an aside,
it's interesting to note that i can't null mount my /solaris/usr
(mounted read-only so that when i reboot into solaris is doesn't get
angry) over onto /emul/sunos/usr. ah...a symlink works! i wonder why
i never tried that before...
okay. now to make some testing.
not a problem. :)
