The neophyte will emerge still a neophyte when he wades thru this book. We need something that starts at Square One (Installation)and proceeds slowly thru setup and usage (like as in printing).Solaris 9 for Dummies
There's also plenty of system administration content, but the author wisely defers to 1000+ page tomes on Solaris administration (and the lots of good administrative material from Sun themselves that we got with our systems) for the nitty-gritty.
This book is good enough that you can hand it to newbies who've just been put in front of a Solaris computer and expect them, within a day or two, to be completely up-to-speed and ready to work!
