I received 2 replies:
  Michael Shon (michael.shon@East.Sun.COM) said, that the he was reasonable sure the ethers info need to be on the local server. I look at it and there was a problem with it. I fixed it, but it didn't solve my problem.

Someone else (which I lost suggeset something else)

I gave up on my test machine and configured it by hand. I got a new
batch and added the hostname only, to the bootparams and killed
rpc.bootparamd and ran "rarpd -d le0" and got it to work.

I don't know why it work. We have a Hughes lan system, Enterprise Hub
1000 and this workstation was plugged into a different board. I moved
it around and it seems that not all port are equal.

However, it is only the first step. Watch for a question on hostconfig.

  Why is it "A penny for your thoughts" but "you have to put your
  two cents in?"  Somebody's making a penny.    -   Steven Wright
