It might be easiest to see what may be needed by referring to some relevant
McIDAS web pages:

Supported Platforms

McIDAS-X Installation Instructions

The beginning of the installation instructions contain information on
configuring shared memory for the platforms we support.  Sun Solaris is
one of the OSes that has to be configured to support more shared memory.

If it is desired to run the McIDAS-XCD package (data decoders for McIDAS),
then you can add a lot of disk to the list of requirements.  The amount
you need depends on what you are trying to do and how much data you want
to keep around, but it is a safe bet that you can easily consume 
2 GB of disk.  This number can really sky rocket if you try to keep
a few days of model data online.

Please let me know if this is not the kind of information you were looking

Thanks.  I think this is exactly what we need.  I'll refer it to our
technical staff; they can get in touch with you if they have unanswered
questions.  Cheers!
