Use the Solaris clients.  Also, the sun boxes 'Sparcs' are spelled
with a 'c', and not a 'k'. :)

SunOS 5.5   = Solaris 2.5   (2.5 client is out)
SunOS 5.5.1 = Solaris 2.5.1 (2.5 clients works with 2.5.1)
SunOS 5.6   = Solaris 2.6   (2.6 client is out)

The Sparc client was one of the first out when RC5-64 came out. I installed
all my sparc (2.5) clients on "Oct 22 17:43".
