SUMMARY: Disable onboard hme0 on ultra5

Thanks everyone who answered. There were two main suggestions:

1. unplumbing the interface using ifconfig. This way is unfortunately unusable 
for me, since there are too many configuration files that have the interface 
in question in them, and the machines should be identical if possible.

2. removing the entry from /etc/path_to_inst: this is wat we ended up doing, 
and which worked great: Solaris doesn't see the interface anymore, the 
'older' hme1 is now hme0 and everything works peachy. Just no reconfiguration 
boots ;p
