Solaris 2.0 did not boot the kernel depending on the SCSI disks installed. Worked with two Seagate disks, but not with Quantum or DEC disks...
Solaris 2.0 could not be installed via serial console, because the installation process would not work correctly with the VT100 terminal setting. It needed a graphical console to install.
