Reconfiguring the network
I am a beginner to Solaris. I installed it on a AMD Athlon 2000+, dual booting with XP. When I installed it, I didn't setup the network section and went on to install it without the n/w config. Now I have ethernet access at my school, and wanted to be able to connect to the internet through the ethernet. I tried to do a -
in the hope that it would ask me for the network config when I rebooted, but it didn't. It just asked me for the host name and no other information.
So, my question is - How do I connect to the internet? The IP address assigned to my laptop will be different every time since I will be plugging into different ethernet ports everytime.

Sounds like you want to setup a DHCP client configuration then. See if http://docs.sun.com/db/doc/806-5529/6jehkcs2g?a=view helps you out.

But shouldn't I be doing a Network Configuration setup before I look into the DHCP thing.
