Regardless of what it says, it PRACTICE, packages from SUN start with SUNW and packages from third parties start with something different (e.g. CTXS for Citrix). You will note that the Software Companion CD packages start with SFW and these come from SUN. The original poster is correct -- SUNW implies the packages came from SUN. You really need to rename the packages.
