Data installation of Solaris: installation bypasses network config.

hello solaris friends,

I've tried installing Sun Solaris 10.0, but everytime it seems to bypass the network config. screen that looks similar to's the url:

I'm able to install it all the way through but I get no network connectivity. I've installed SuSE on this computer before without any problems with the net config.

Any thoughts?

More likely that not your network card is not supported. Check the hardware compatibility list. If solaris does not detect a supported network card, it will assume no network connection and install without network configuration.

Is there still a way to connect Solaris10 to the internet...

How would i go about connecting to the internet after it has been installed?

I have a D-Link DFE-530TX+ which is on the Sun HCL list, but it still doesn't get recognized. I also want to know if I can get Solaris to recognize it after installation.

how do i do it by avoiding the command-line? er, any solution would do.
