Solaris 8 Installation problem on Intel !

I've tried to install solaris 8 on the Intel ,but in lan card detecting that i should give IP address ,it fails & doesn't accept it.

So i tried to install without networking ,but after that it has strange behaviour ,( eng. when i want to poweroff machine by init 5 it doesn't do anything)

Anyway who can help me for forcing the machin for detecting Lan card & give me suggestion regarding this case?

Rgrds,
Nikk

HI.

The drivers on the nic is not properly installed, download the correct driver and and install it.. and you should be fine. Init 5 will just reboot the machine on the intel version. it suppose to bring the system all the way down but i guess it a bug or just doesn't work.. but hope i was any help later
