I don't know how recently you got hold of Solaris 8_x86, but as of the Update 2
(10/00) release, Gnome (including Enlightenment) and a load of other Freeware
has been made available as part of the distribution. The Companion CD has it
all in standard Solaris Package format.
Update 3 (1/01) should be with us soon, and again that has very recent versions
of all this stuff on the CD ready to install. If you've just purchased Solaris
8 it might be a little less palatable to buy the latest version just to get this
free stuff, but it's an option.
I hope this helps,
