If you're on Solaris 8 and you plan to use DISM features w/ 9.2.0.x,
you'd better be ready to apply significant patches.  (When I laid it
out, my sysadmin seemed to think moving to Solaris 9 was easier....)  If
you don't plan to set sga_max_size, you won't be bitten by the DISM bug,
but, there my be other features that need other patches applied to work
correctly.  My recommendation, go to Solaris 9 before you go to Oracle
