It has been a few years since I worked on Sun....
hme0 is an ethernet interface on a card with a single interface. The
second card would be hme1, of course.
qfe0 is port 0 of a 4 interface ethernet module
I don't know what eri0 is....but more than likely a person using Sun
hardware on a regular basis will know. And, to my knowledge, their
numbering system hasn't changed.
