(total forgot about this...) anyway

get device address from 2nd network card
	i used 'dmsg' and got teh following info
	hme1 is /pci@1f,0/pci@1/IntraServer,hme@3,1

as root; init 0  <--: bring system down
at the OK prompt:

ok nvalias net2 /pci@1f,0/pci@1/IntraServer,hme@3,1
ok setenv use-nvramrc? true 
ok devalias net2              
net2                     /pci@1f,0/pci@1/IntraServer,hme@3,1

so i can now do a : boot net2 - install
