I finally got my network setup (it only took me what ~1-year).
The nge0 driver with Solaris 10 11/06 doesn't work with "pci10de,269" ;NFORCE 430 MCP51 (at lest I couldn't get it to work).
0) Read this:
1) Install Studio11
mv opt /export/home/opt
ln -s /export/home/opt opt
2) Compile and Install nfo driver according to READEME.txt
Step 4 is the only one that matters (make install, etc.).
Other drivers can be found on that web page too. So there should now be no reason why the on-board NIC can't be used.
update_drv -a -i '"pci10de,0269"' nfo
Remove any other reference to pci10de,269
unix% reboot -- -r
IPV6 & DHCP
DNS : comcast.net
Server : 192.168.1.1
echo johnny5 > /etc/hostname.nfo0
echo 192.168.1.3 johnny5.localhost johnny5 > /etc/hosts
echo 192.168.1.1 > /etc.defaultrouter
echo 192.168.1.0 255.255.0 >> /etc/netmasks
Reboot the normal way.
Test that my machine is alive.
unix% ping johnny5
johnny5 is alive
Check that I can see my router:
unix% ping 192.168.1.1
192.168.1.1 is alive
Now I can use the internet...
I hope I didn't forget anything.
Now onto the Audio setup...(hopefully before 2008).
