Can't run adminserver.sh

Hi !
I am trying to make Websphere 3.5 run on a Solaris 2.8 unix server.
I have managed to hava it running under Windows NT without any
problem.
But it doesn't seem so obvious under Unix.
When I try to run adminserver.sh, I get the same problem as some
people has had (as I can see in the newsgroup) :
FATAL could not load database driver
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException:jdbc.idbDriver
and many error lines after it.
For my web applications, I won't need any database and JDBC, so I'm
angry being trapped by a jdbc question.
Some people in the news tell that it's because of the db2java.zip that
isn't found. I had this file in Windows NT, but don't have it under
Unix.
Do I have to run createdb2.sh ?
What is it used for ?
Help me please !

I am not very sure, but I think the IDBDriver is used to access the Internal DB that comes with Websphere for storing its Configuration etc. If you are getting this error, I think things have not been installed properly.
