SUMMARY: Solaris 10 and cheap hubs

Thanks to all the people who replied, 

Andy Lee asked me to try ping -ns

This worked, apparently solaris 10 will not ping unless it can do a
reverse DNS on the ip. The strange thing is, the firewall was also the
default gateway, and tcpdump did not show any traffic to the DNS

Stranger still is that I could ping systems on the same hub which were
not in hosts or DNS.

Anyway, my problem is solved,
thanks again,
