drivers you need to use are often the

SunPCI NDIS driver and the SIS 900 PCI fast ethernet adapter.

It sounds like the sunpci Virtual interface doesn't have a valid IP address. Try 


from windows to see what IP address has been assigned. This may be the default 
(and thus invalid) one

also, try just pinging a host from a command prompt to see if you get any 

The unix drives can all map as long as they are all mounted by the unix box the 
sunpci is running from - but they are a lot slower than mapped MS drives.

If all else fails just hook up a network cable to the actual sunpci card and try 
using that.

Big word of advice - get rid of these sunpci cards. Buy a low spec PC and you'll 
save yourself days/weeks of aggro.

 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...
