Exclamation help needed on many things


Hi solaris geeks

I am new to solaris and using the new solaris 10 x86 32 bit edition on my Intel pc

I need help on the following things

1.
How can i know whether my Ethernet card is recognized or not under solaris 10 ?

2.

I need to enable dhcp in my Ethernet to have an internet connection in my Linux/solaris pc from a winxp system

3.

How can i mount and use fat32 partitions in solaris ,when the system is in dual boot with winxp and solaris 10

4.

I need to view all the partitions in my hard drive

i need to put my solaris system in network with other winxp system ,i know samba is there for doing this , but many apps in Linux and solaris does not support saving a work n to a fat32 partition using the samba protocol

I am still a learner regarding solaris os ,so if you find any of above questions as a silly thing , please forgive me

Hoping to hear more from the lq community for my queries

Run:
Code:
ifconfig -a plumb
ifconfig -a
and see if your network card is shown (ignore the lo0 interface).

Replace xyz0 by your interface driver name.
