    There's a very useful page at Sun called the Hardware Compatibility
    List. Look up your machine there before trying to install Solaris on
    unsupported x86
    http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/hcl/data...tails/871.html

    Hi Thommy
    thanks for your answer. I do the things described in the SUN URL but my
    interface don't work. When i start the interface with the script i see
    in /var/adm/messages the following message:
    elxl0 is /pci@0,0/pci10b7,6256@b

    ifconfig elxl0 shows this:
    elxl0: flags=1000843 mtu 1500
    index 7 inet 192.168.1.38 netmask ffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255
    ether 0:1:3:89:d7:30

    On the outside Interface LED of the Notebook no Link LED shines.


    prtconv show the correct pci10b7,6256@b entry for the ethernet
    controller.
    When i boot the NB with WINXP the Interface works fine.
