[SunHELP] SunPC 1.3

Friday a user was OK with his Win98 on SunPC 1.2.2. Sunday night we had a
power failure. Monday, user comes in and gets "No domain server available to
verify password" error. Did a ping to the PDC from Solaris and it sees the PDC
just fine. Can't do a ping from SunPC.

I thought it may be remotely possible that something got corrupted with the
power failure so I removed his old emulated C: drive and all applications. I
removed SunPC 1.2.2 and installed 1.3. I then copied (from another users
machine) a "new" C: drive and apps. so everything is "new".

Still get the "No Domain...." error. Now, this is an old SunPC card with no
hardware NIC - so I assume I'm using the virtual NIC built in to SunPC
software. So, the question is, even though SunPC 1.3 uses a virtual NIC is
there some component on the SunPC card that could have gotten nuked when the
power failure hit? It seems like the card is the only thing I haven't replaced
but how would that matter with a virtual NIC?

What is also odd is that I can "map" local Unix file systems as network drives
just fine - I just can't get outside of the box with SunPC...
