Sun Ultra 24

So, the Sun Ultra 24 I'm evaluating through Sun's Try and Buy program arrived today. After hooking it up to the network it managed to knock every other host (including a Sun Ultra 20 M2) off the network. Next Solaris got stuck in an infinite loop of:

"Oh look, a network connection!"
"Oh dear, where'd my network connection go?"

Hoping it was a Solaris problem (hey, it's not the first time I've had networking issues with Solaris on Sun hardware), I installed Windows Vista. And just like Solaris, Vista got stuck in an infinite loop of:

"Oh look, a network connection!"
"Oh dear, where'd my network connection go?"

I think it's time to get in touch with Sun.
