    Hello,
    I have just tryed the opensolaris 2010 preview devoloper build from http://www.genunix.org/
    it has all the drivers for virtualbox.
    drum roll please... the live cd finaly boots on my hardware!
    it has the driver for my wireless card but cant find a wireless config utiliy.
    it said driver for my marvell. ethernet card was from a third party and of course cannot access the repo because I cannot connect to the internet.
    it detected my creative x-fi sound card but couldnt find driver it tryed to query sun but of course couldnt since i didnt have an internet connection at the time. btw linux wont have creative x-fi until the next kernal 2.6.31 due to creative focusing on MS to much and forgetting everyone else.
    It has the lastest nvidia X driver installed so compiz fusion OOTB
    It doesnt seem to have drivers to access ntfs partitions.
    overall Opensolaris is getting better!
    I will be testing the later builds. the final is meant to be coming out next febuary.

    edit: ive found a marvell ethernet driver for solaris on their website. hopfully i can install it from my usb stick or just wait until next build comes out and hopfully a wireless network manager is avaliable.
