No problem -- glad it does work more or less as advertised.
By the way, there is (not yet) any 'official' ATA support for solaris.
You can find an 'unofficial' patched version of the smartmontools 5.1-18
release here: http://card-captor.dyndns.org/pub/solaris-smart/ We're
trying to get this support into the smartmontools source but it's being
held up as we try and sort out some licensing issues.

It's generally Attribute #194, and the raw value IS celsius. But at least
some recent WD drives appear not to have a temperature attribute.
