disk devices, including the DVD devices.
Create a mount point for the Applications DVD, if one

To determine which products and versions are on your system,
use the swlist command: /usr/sbin/swlist
Use swinstall to install software from
the Applications DVD.
The following example uses swinstall to install
software from the source mounted at /cdrom: /usr/sbin/swinstall -s /cdrom bundlename

Select and install software from the Applications DVD.
The swinstall program has an interface for

You must unmount the DVD before you can eject it from the DVD-ROM
drive. The DVD is automatically unmounted whenever the server reboots.
