If so you will need to alter /etc/network/interfaces. The debian core will provide DHCP capability. IIRC most NTL ethernet modems lock the mac address of the nic that was attached when they were first setup and configured. Power cycling the modem after you have attached it to the sun box may work if not then you will need to spoof the mac address on the sun box so the NTL modem thinks it is the same nic/machine.
