How to configure the host to dhcp mode

I try a static ip assign mode while i installed the Solaris 10(U 8). But i can't access the internet, i try the ifconfig -a command and see my configuration is correct in the interface. So i want to get my ip using dhcp. I search from internet. They give me the suggestions.

ifconfig interface dhcp start ( from this command , i get the wait timeout.)

but the corresponding interface haven't been set successful.

Pls give me a hint or link.

Thank u in advance.

This will let you choose DHCP option for your NIC, after you configure your system will reboot and if you had selected DHCP option Solaris will use it upon boot.
