Data Network problem after sys-unconfig

I am running Solaris 8 and I have problem with configuration of the network after running sys-unconfig command:

- I ran "sys-unconfig" command then the system reboot to "ok" prompt. I did a "boot disk" command and the system reboot
- I lost all system info including host name and all addresses and dns as a name resolve
- I went back in after reboot and ran the "ifconfig" command for the IP address, mask, and use the "route add default" command for the default router

But all lost again after I reboot the system. My questions are

1) How do I ran the "ifconfig" command so that the system keep all the config after reboot.

2) How do I put back the host name to the system? (I went into /etc and try to change the host name but the "hosts" file is "read only" and I went in as root.)

Manny thanks for help
