Videos are nice, I suppose, but I'm trying to use the actual written documentation to get started with OpenStack on Solaris... .and not getting far :(

I'm trying to follow
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/articles/servers-storage-admin/getting-started-openstack-os11-2-2195380.html

and using the pre-built UAR.
So okay, i have the dash board up, but cant make any instances. The guide mentions
"under the Network tab, you can choose which network the instance should be attached to. "
But skips the part about how you have to go to the Network tab first, and define a network, before you can do anything with a new node. More importantly, it isnt clear HOW to do that.
Of particular interest is that, since this is a proof-of-concept system, I dont get to abuse our DHCP server. It needs to be statically allocated IP addrs.
How do I do that??
