I just looked inside my ULTRA SPARC ONE. The ethernet I/O appears to be embedded in the big mother board. That is not good if I am correct.

Subject: Aurora - SPARC question....
I've not been WLUG active for a year or more. Back then the half of my 111 gig PC disc which was dual booted with FEDORA developed a permanent error. The other half's XP installation has been OKAY. I have learned to us WINDOWS.
Meanwhile my SUN ULTRA running as an Aurora SPARC SAMBA file server since 1993 has been chugging along just fine.
I live in Fitchburg. We have been without power for nine days. 110 volts came up yesterday evening. Much to my chegrin my SUN was unhappy. I used a rescueCD to boot. All came back except my ethernet card. It would not start. The little light at the far end on the IP cord does not glow...
says, "Bringing up interface eth0: Determining IP information for eth0 ... failed.
The card is claimed to be a 'sunlance' card.
Any ideas? Is the card fried do you think?
I have a second SPARC machine. It's ethernet was working last time it was powered. Must I swap?
