Sorry, I may be asking this the wrong way.
I need to deploy SO to about 500 Windows PC's. Is there a way to incorporate the latest update in with the installation files so that I do not have to install SO and then immediately run update 10 to patch it to the latest level?
Update 10 is available for those of us who already have SO8 installed. If you are doing fresh installs then you should be using the SO8 installer for new installations which includes update 10. I do not know if it is available yet--the fresh installer incorporating the new update is available after the updates release.
If you are licensing 500 seats, then you should ask Sun's tech support for it.
