Fine, I will have the network card removed, but it will take time since 
the server is in another country. I will also upgrade the PROM.

I will continue this thread when it's done.

By the way, I tried to install OpenBSD and the PCI network card doesn't 
work : while the kernel recognizes it as hme1, using it produces timeout 
errors. But under Solaris 8 it runs fine. I didn't try NetBSD.

Thank you for the references for upgrading the PROM.

Another question about the PROM, at least what version of the firmware 
FreeBSD (and OpenBSD) need to work correctly on a Ultra workstation ? 
All I get through a google research is that old firmwares will not work. 
Mine is 3.11, which isn't the oldest, nor the newest.
