intel 945GM (i810) and OpenSolaris 2008.05

So clearly there is an i810 driver issue with the kernel on the LiveCD. I know that I can login as jack:jack (root password opensolaris).

1. How do I change it such that the driver that is loaded is vesa instead of i810?
2. And given that it loads to console, what would the command be to start the gui?
3. What will I need to do to get the internet drivers working?

When I run startx after logging on as jack:jack at the snv_93 console, I get the following error

Drivers to try are: "i810" "intel" "fbdev" "vesa" "vga"
