Got some good advice on this, but the solution was simply to
apply the 2.6Recommended patches. The interface came up without
a hitch. knew this. Thanks!


 This is a common problem and is related to CPU speed (CPU's
greater than 333MHz I think!).  You need to update your kernel
revision to be greater than 15.  The recommended patches should
fix this, sun do have specific  hardware release that fixes this
problem (HW98 I think?!).

 Hope this helps,

Some good suggestions to other people with "link down" problems
who will find this summary in a keyword search:

 You have to check the autonegotiation. You should have
 ndd -set /dev/hme adv_autoneg_cap 1

 which will autonegotiate.

 Hope it helps

 If it's a hub you are conecting to instead of a switch you
can't use Full Duplex.
