ip interface setup on netra t1 105

I'm trying to setup a Netra t1 105. Where are instructions? Maybe there is a web site somewhere that addresses Netra t1 setup. Any help will be appreciated. Now I've discovered that
a null modem cable is needed to connect to serial A to get
console access. The ethernet device names for the two ports
on the motherboard are hme0 and hme1. What is the device
name for the pci ethernet interface? It's a Sun FastEthernet.
Also, when I do an ifconfig hme0 <ip address> the address gets
set and the machine comes up on the network. I created the
hostname.hme0 file and put the machine name and ip in the
/etc/hosts file. Then I used ifconfig to create the interface:
# ifconfig hme0 plumb
# ifconfig hme0 10.1.0.100 up
# ifconfig -a
lo0: flags=849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 8232
        inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000
hme0: flags=843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
        inet 10.1.0.100 netmask ff000000 broadcast 10.255.255.255
        ether 8:0:20:c2:1d:5a

The interface is functional now. When I reboot I get this:

configuring network interfaces:ifconfig: SIOCSIFADDR: hme0: Cannot assign reques
ted address
 hme0.


Here is the ifconfig -a after the machine boots:

# ifconfig -a
lo0: flags=849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 8232
        inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000
hme0: flags=862<BROADCAST,NOTRAILERS,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
        inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000 broadcast 127.255.255.255
        ether 8:0:20:c2:1d:5a

Why won't it take my address?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you,

The settings with ifconfig is only valid
until you reboot. After that the
settings are gone.
Create the file /etc/hostname.hme0 and
let it contain the IP address OR let it
contain the name of the host and do the
mapping of hostname -> IP address in
/etc/hosts.

What kind of PCI card do you have?
If it's a Quad Fast Ethernet the ports
are called qfe0-qfe3. If it's a combined
SCSI/Fast Ethernet I think it's hme2.
