Solaris questions...

I'm ssh'ed into a Sun Blade 100 Worstation at the root prompt, # .

I can uname -a and get:
SunOS machinename 5.8 Generic_108528-19 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Blade-100

(machinename changed to protect the innocent.)

How do I determine what version/level of Solaris this is?
How can I determine what patch level the thing is at? I assume the uname output above is indicating that the latest patch was 108528-19, but in /var/sadm/patch there are about 200 patch numbers listed with some 109nnn numbers.

Thanks for any help?

Moderators: I posted this in General before I realized that there was a Solaris forum.
