Many thanks to all those who answered so promptly, and special thanks to
Jason Santos with his response: 


1.	Make a backup copy of /etc/path_to_inst. 
2.	vi /etc/path_to_inst 
3.	Search for the line that ends with 0 "hme", example
"/ssm@0,0/pci@1c,700000/pci@1/SUNW,hme@0,1" 0 "hme" 
4.	Delete this line (it is the old hme0 which is no longer in that
5.	Search for the line that ends with: 1 "hme", example:
"/ssm@0,0/pci@1e,700000/pci@1/SUNW,hme@0,1" 1 "hme" 
6.	Change the last 1 to a 0, so it now reads 0 "hme" (This will make
hme1 become hme0). 
7.	Save the file, reboot.

Its working great. My system properly added hme0 again on restart.

Subject: hme0 missing


I have a sun blade 100 with a Sun scsi/ethernet combo PCI card that i use as

a NAT router with Solaris 9 and sunscreen. Recently, I have purchased a

SunPCi 3, and i was forced to move the ethernet card from slot 1 to slot 3

to get the SunPCi to fit. I have boot -r'd many many times, but i still

cannot get hme0 to turn up again.


I have looked in /dev, and hme does show up there. If i delete it, then run

devfsadm, it does re-appear. Can anyone help?
