Hi all,
Can anybody tell me how to install Solaris 2.6 with :

1. AGP Sis 6326 Display Adapter 4M
 
2. Novell PCI Network Adapter Realtek 8029 ?

I only can use compatiple driver for Display Adapter and configuration assistant could not detect above NIC.

How to make configuration assistant update these drivers ?
 
Thanks anyway !

For display you must change X server to XFree86 or other product. Sun don't expect to provide driver for all hardware, If you want to use Solaris x86 you must buy component from HCL.
