I feared that :) Since i really like the new softupdate feature, i would
like to use it for solaris too. I will take another look at cfengine, but 
since i already use fai for installing, i would prefer to let fai do both

I thought, it was ment to support sunos in 2.8, since there are solaris 
related parts in fai, but perhaps they are left from previous versions.
Anyway, meanwhile i also think it's better to keep most of the sunos part
seperated. I'll take a look, if it is possible to use softupdates for sunos 
without too much effort. It's great to install solaris with fai, though.
