Then you'd better report Sun to themselves for pirating their own 
operating system.

Technically you can't redistribute Sun CDROMs but if you think of the 
CD burner as a kind of proxy server then it's not too evil.  After all, 
if he was standing next to you while you downloaded and burnt it, it 
would be legal.  He's just a bit further away, that's all.

Oddly enough the x86 version is $20 to download, while the sparc one is 
free.  But why would you want the x86 version?
