The P35 "chipset" works fine with Solaris.
Whether or not the "motherboard" works with Solaris is decided by
the vendors choice of additional chips/drivers for things like
SATA, Network, and other ports.
The Intel network core in the P35 chipset (ICH-9 southbridge) works with 
Nevada.
The Intel SATA ports in the ICH-9 southbridge work.
Some of the third party boards add two additional SATA ports on an
unsupported third party chip.  Beware.
Some boards add a second ethernet port using a Marvell or other 
unsupported controller.
