The packages for Solaris 8 and 9 (and later) are both in the zip file. There are two options of the zip file, 32bit, and 64bit, but they both have the same checksums, so there are no differences: p10264452_223_SOLARIS64.zip (p10264451_223_SOLARIS.zip)

Install the software as you would any Package with pkgadd.

Command syntax is same:
#/usr/platform/`uname -i`/rsc/rscadm userpassword admin
[To reconfigure the card run the command:
# usr/platform/`uname -i`/rsc/rsc-config

[If you had installed the software before and believe the card is configured check the setup:
# usr/platform/`uname -i`/rsc/rscadm show
