If iirc, you have to explicitly set *everything* in your jumpstart
profile or it will barf out this way (if it has a head it will
drop you to the curses version of the interactive install).  The
biggest problem I had with my jumpstart profile was getting the
syntax right for the defaultrouter and the dns server.

I don't have a solaris box to bork around with or I'd make more
detailed suggestions.
