Thanks for all of the responses and help.
A special thanks to and
for their follow up suggestions.

The majority of responses directed me to Celeste Stokely's Solaris modem
tutorial at This was a great help, however did
not fix my particular problem. The fix was to load 2.5.1. There must be
a patch for 2.5 or else I had some other weird problems with the o/s.
