Thanks to

        Casper Dik
        Brooke King
Workaround from Brooke helped;

        changing the S72inetsvc from the '+' for broadcast to hard coded mask
        /usr/sbin/ifconfig -auD netmask broadcast +
The Correct fix from Casper worked;

        The patch id is 105795-05.
        This is an hme patch to
        SUNWhmd SunSwift SBus Adapter Drivers
        SUNWhmdu SunSwift SBus Adapter Headers
I started this morning with a fresh Solaris 2.6 5/98 installation.
Boot time is about 7 minutes from power on until CDE login.

Installed the patch and rebooted without making any additional changes.

The System will boot and display the CDE login in 2 minutes flat.

Thanks to all who sent suggestions.

Richard Felkins.
