I have a Sun Solaris V440 running Solaris 9 and it just crashed.  An error message was displayed at the console but I didn't write it down.

Where should I look to track down the problem?

Is the server back up and running?

Type in

dmesg

to see most of the console messages.  

Additionally, check in /var/adm/messages and /var/log/syslog for any useful information.
