I've used 5.1 un-patched on solaris 10 for some testing. It's not thatit 
doesn't work, it's just that it doesn't know anything about thesolaris 10 init 
and inetd systems. After installing it, you need touse the inetconv utility to 
convert the /etc/inetd.conf entries intosmf entries. I've never tried it on the 
server side, but suspect itwill work just fine - as long as you get around the 
changes sun made.
