Patch Installation Instructions:
--------------------------------
For Solaris 7, 8, and 9 releases, refer to the manual pages for instructions on using 'patchadd' and 'patchrm'
scripts provided with Solaris. Any other special or non-generic installation instructions are described below
as special instructions. The following example installs a patch on a standalone machine:

        example# patchadd 119744-XX

The following example removes a patch from a standalone system:

        example# patchrm 119744-XX

For additional examples, see the appropriate manual pages.


Special Installation Instructions: 
----------------------------------
Use the shutdown command to reboot the system after installing or uninstalling a patch:

	# shutdown -g0 -y -i6
