	I checked, and I only have TotalNet 5.2.  Thats whats bundled with
the 5/99 release of Solaris 7.

	Sun also has a product that was formely titled "Project Cascade",
and is now called Sun PC Netlink.  This is currently shipping and offers
full NT Domain support.  Cost is based on what kind of machine you want
to run it on, the low end (Sun Ultra 5S through Enterprise 450) is $1495.
I called Sun about getting an eval, and they said there is no eval program
with it, but that it will eventually be bundled with the server edition of
Solaris 7.  Maybe as soon as september...

	Anyways, here is the product description from the Sun Web Page:
