i'm pretty sure its /dev/elx0 or /dev/elx1 or whatever and not just /dev/elx

oldest sol box I still have warm is sol9 on a v240 (dual ultrasparc 
III), with a bge, and it for sure wants /dev/bge0

we never ran much solaris x86 prior to solaris 10, the hardware support 
was too sketchy for us.

FWIW, I *never* liked 3Com adapters, I never understood why they were so 
popular with the PC crowd.
