Hello list

I've just installed Solaris 9 for x86, but have a little problem, the ethernet 
card was not recognized, I guess that 'cos can't even ping to and from the 
outside solaris box, I get

ICMP Host Unreachable from gateway localhost (
 for icmo from localhost ( to mysolarisbox ( is a linux box, both of them are connected in a home LAN and have 
internet access thru a router... when configuring network at install choosed 
"Detect" in the router seccion (instead of specify one or none...

How can I fix that? am new to solaris, know linux and a bit of freebsd, so can 
move inside the system and edit configurations, but need it to be conneced to 
internet so I can work directly from the solaris...

All I need is a solaris working with a compiler to port a software, connection 
to my LAN and internet, that's all...

Thanks for your help!

P.S. Is there a graphic utility included to configure the system?
