BTW - you can do a ifconfig -a which will show you the interface (if you have it booted from the old software).

Also, sunsolve sucks for trying to find solutions - I haven't been able to find anything on your error. Please post the exact error you are getting.

If I remember correctly, Solaris 8 cdrom installations can be done two ways. The first cd give some kind of GUI interface b.s. thing which sometimes works, and sometimes doesn't. You can load either the second or third cd in the pack and it is also bootable - it's actually more like the Solaris 2.6 type of installs. Also, all this is from my memory which hasn't been working as well as usual, so if anyone can back me up on this or completely blow me out of the water, go right ahead. Anyway, try one of the other cd's...worth a shot.

Cache read misses from an instruction cache generally cause the longest delays because the processor, and in particular the thread of execution, has to wait until the instruction is fetched from main memory.

epair -- A pair of virtual back-to-back connected Ethernet interfaces. SYNOPSIS
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your kernel configuration file: device epair Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): if_epair_load="YES" DESCRIPTION
The epair is a pair of Ethernet-like software interfaces, which are connected back-to-back with a virtual cross-over cable. Each epair interface pair is created at runtime using interface cloning. This is most easily done with the ifconfig(8) create command or using the cloned_interfaces variable in rc.conf(5). While for cloning you only give either epair or epair<n> the epair pair will be named like epair<n>[ab]. This means the names of the first epair interfaces will be epair0a and epair0b. Like any other Ethernet interface, an epair needs to have a network address. Each epair will be assigned a locally administered address by default, that is only guaranteed to be unique within one network stack. To change the default addresses one may use the SIOCSIFADDR ioctl(2) or ifconfig(8) utility. The basic intend is to provide connectivity between two virtual network stack instances. When connected to a if_bridge(4) one end of the interface pair can also be part of another (virtual) LAN. As with any other Ethernet interface one can configure vlan(4) support on top of it. SEE ALSO
ioctl(2), altq(4), bpf(4), if_bridge(4), vlan(4), loader.conf(5,) rc.conf(5), ifconfig(8) HISTORY
The epair interface first appeared in FreeBSD 8.0. AUTHORS
The epair interface was written by Bjoern A. Zeeb, CK Software GmbH, under sponsorship from the FreeBSD Foundation. BSD
