Solaris on the iMac

Solaris Nevada build 36 running on an iMac
We now have Solaris Nevada build 36 installed and running on a bootcamp equipped iMac.
The next hurdle is that the Solaris fdisk doesn't interact all that well with the bootcamp prepared disk. This is 6413235. The reason this becomes a hurdle is that install re-writes the fdisk table even when we can simply use the existing one. That is 6413240.
This is all using the bootcamp bits which make the Macs look like just another (BIOS bugs and all) x86 system. Bringing Solaris up in native (EFI) mode is still the real challenge.
