"Are you sure it is io0 and not lo0 (ell-o zero), the loopback interface ?" - Sorry was a typo, I corrected it.
"So whay aren't you staying with OpenSolaris ?" - I really like the JDS and the performance of Solaris
I don't mean to come across as a pest, but which are the modules I need??
SCO Unix 5.0.X
And thanks a lot for the help guys, this Forums never let me down
Distribution: Slackware & Slamd64. What else is there?
Realtek o/b NICs are a PITA and Solaris is still weak on x86 device drivers. Fortunately, you can often tweak the settings in Solaris to get it to use your NIC. Actually, I'm pretty happy with this...I was able to use an existing driver and didn't have to even compile anything!
Thanks Randux. I Used The Information In The Link.
I Now Have rge0 As A Device, But 1) DHCP Won't Work With It
2) When I Specify It's IP Address And Everything It Still Won't Connect To The Internet Or When I Try To Access The Router Through Firefox It Just Keeps Trying To Connect To No Avail,
Sorry To Come Accross As A Pest, But Any Help For A Unix Noob Would Be Greatly Appreciated!
Unable To Start /sbin/dhcpagent And Yes I Did Enter The Command Correctly,
The Little Applet Is Saying Its Sending And Recieving Packets, But The Router Is Saying Its Not Connected,
I Disabled The Loopback Interface As To Make Sure There All Using The Correct Interface, But Still No Avail.
I Think The Adapters Working, But I Think I Must Of Configured It Badly, Even Though I'v Done It 3 Times Exactly How It Should Be :S
Btw I Never Configured A DNS Server, I Selected None, Could That Be The Problem?
If So Which Type Of DNS Do I Use For A Basic Netgear Router?
