OpenSolaris Meet Skulltrail

I built a new "V8 rig" to run OpenSolaris based upon the Intel D5400XS "Skulltrail" motherboard. With dual Quad-Core processors, it's an excellent enthusiast platform. OpenSolaris 2008.11 installs cleanly and quickly with great support for the on-board devices -- it's a marriage made in heaven.
