Install Teradata Client on Unix Sun Solaris SPARC and general x86 machines

Hi

In Windows, I have Teradata GUI client installed that I use to run some .bteq and .sql scripts/queries on a database. So, basically I click on the icon on the desktop for Teradata client and then provide ". logon database/username" and I'm connected. The version I see in Windows client for Teradata is showing me "BTEQWin 13.10.00.03" which does the job for me.

Now, I want the same capability from a Unix machine (I have 2 types: Sun Solaris Sparc 10 and other one is Generic SunOS x86 machine).

My questions are:

- Which client do I need to install to get the above funcationality working from Unix $ prompt?

- Will the same client for SunOS Solaris - work for both types of machines as I have mentioned above? 

- From where can I get the installer with instructions (in case I dont have the DVD)?

- What do I need to install as a pre-requisite before installing the client so that it works perfectly after installation.

Thanks
