	I recommend updating to Solaris 2.6, or even 2.7.  In addition
	to Y2K compliance, there are a vast number of security patches
	included, and quite a few other improvements.
	
	I have found all old EPICS binaries run with no problems on
	the newer version.  The reverse is not true in all cases:
	the loader will balk at older versions of some standard
	shared-objects (like Motif lib).

	No issues were found for any parts of EPICS, other than
	a few minor changes to CONFIG_SITE's.
