Patch Installation Instructions:
Please refer to the man pages for instructions on using 'patchadd'
and 'patchrm' commands provided with Solaris.
The following example installs a patch to a standalone machine:
       example# patchadd /var/spool/patch/123456-07
The following example removes a patch from a standalone system:
       example# patchrm 123456-07
For additional examples please see the appropriate man pages. Any
other special or non-generic installation instructions should be
described below as special instructions.

Special Install Instructions:
NOTE 1:  To get the fixes contained in this patch, this patch must be
         applied to the Miniroot, which is located in the Boot directory
         on Net Install servers and Boot servers.
         The Miniroot needs to be patched on the Net Install server
         and on all Boot servers that have already been created
         from the Net Install server.
         Please also note that a patched Net Install server will
         create patched Boot servers.  In other words, if you patch
         a Net Install server, and subsequently make a Boot server
         from it by using the 'setup_install_server' command, the
         newly-created Boot server will incorporate the patch applied
         to the Net Install server.
         Use 'patchadd -C' for this patch, rather than the generic
                  # patchadd -C <path_to_miniroot> <patchid>
         Remove the Miniroot patch using something similar to:
                  # patchrm -C <path_to_miniroot>  <patchid>
         where path_to_miniroot is <top_of_image_tree>/Solaris_<9,10,...>/Tools/Boot

NOTE: The list of 'patches required with this patch' (above) has been
modified from the list specified at patch creation time. The reason for
the modification is that one or more of the required patches was
either never released or withdrawn after its release. The following
substitutions (which are guaranteed to satisfy the original requirements)
were therefore made:

142910-17 replaces 142910-02
