Soon, I’ll document how to burn an bootable CDROM installer for Solaris 8. I got this working today — it was a happy occasion. The most frustrating part of it was dealing with my boss. He is a former mainframe programmer (ok, so he claims to have done client-server stuff as well), but, though he must have had some experience on the other end of this, he seems to have a hard time managing technical people. There is this idea that nothing I do should take more than a day or two and that I should always be checking off items on my TODO list. But, I can’t task switch very well, so things go much more slowly if I try to show some movement on all fronts.
