Dear All,

I've just been given a Solaris 10 system to play with
for the first time and am attempting to install Oracle
10gR2.  Could anyone offer me a quick short cut to
understanding Solaris 10 projects for setting kernel
parameters?  I (very) vaguely understand these as
groupings of attributes or resource settings which may
be applied to groups of users.  Is this correct?

In the Quick Installation Guide (p29) you are expected
to check/set these (prctl) for the user.root project. 
However, the user "oracle" is not a member of
"user.root" project (it is in "default").  Does this
matter?  Is this because oradism runs as suid root? 
Or am I barking up the wrong tree completely?  

I don't really want to get down to all the
nitty-gritty about Solaris projects but I'd be happier
having at least some inkling of what I am doing!

Many thanks!
