Just been given a Sun Blade 1000, looking to do something interesting with it (web server perhaps?)

Need to find people knowledgeable about Sun stuff like this, because I'm lost. Won't go in-depth yet because I'm not sure if this is the place to ask...reply if you think you can help.

The best place to start is the site. All documents are there.

Might consider checking for updates to the openbios and consider the newest supported OS.

I've been trying to, but I can't seem to locate much relevant...anything.

In particular, I'm looking for some kind of guide for commands to use in the console it boots up to, and how to install Solaris 10 (since Solaris, as I understand it, is GUI-based). I have the Solaris media for installing on a SPARC system but can't figure out how to use it.

Their forums are kinda slow, almost to the point of being dead (in terms of user activity, that is). Any pointers in the right direction?

Thanks :)

Through further digging on the Sun site, I have tracked down some manuals, but unfortunately they presume the user has an existing knowledge of Sun hardware operation in general. Since I don't have this, the documentation has quite a bit less meaning to me.
