Iam new in solaris (from linux and *Bsd). I have a couple of
questions. I hope that you can help me with it.
1. How can I change the default windowmanager (from CDE to Afterstep)?
2. How can I activate framebuffer console? (bigger resolution)
3. I see that in die Solaris world the most sysadmins install x-window
on server. What is the background of this?
4. How can i activate more consoles? (changing with Alt + F1, Alt + F2

1. Ethernet card found during installation but I see error msgs on console (server installation)

    I have just setted up a linux server running Redhat 5.2 on my system.
During installation, it detected successfully my ethernet card.  I entered
the IP, domain name host name and subnet mask.
    Once the installation finished, when my server is online, I see strange
error msg on console and can't do networking.  I can't ping my others
machine running win98 over the network.  Here are an example of the msg I
got at the console :
        eth0: 21140 transmit timed out, status f0200000, SIA 000000c6
                              fff8ffff 8ff40000, resetting...
        eth0: Transmit timed out, switching to 100baseTx media.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Tanx in advance.
