I'm still trying to get my Solaris domU working on a Gentoo dom0.  With
Robert's help I now know the difference between Express and OpenSolaris,
and I'm back to trying this with an Express ISO, Nevada build 87, now
armed with the "-kd" kernel command line option.  (This is the newest
build available, right?  And should work...?)

I'm still getting a kernel panic when I try to boot the install ISO.
Current config file is below, and the kernel panic I get when I try to
boot the CD is pasted along with a stack printout, at:


Thanks for all the help.
