Download it, burn it onto CD, and install it -- but make sure your hardware is compatible first, lest you waste your time.
Since Solaris x86 doesnít support as much esoteric hardware as the Linux kernel does, and since Solarisís driver support is nowhere near as comprehensive, begin by checking Sunís Hardware Compatability List (HCL) to see if your system components are supported. The Solaris 9 HCL can be found at http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/hcl/data/sol/, and the Solaris 10 HCL can be found at http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/hcl/data/sx/. You may need to check both lists, as Solaris 10 pretty much supports everything listed for Solaris 9.
