Start off running them headless (Mac modem serial cable and null
modem adapter), and if you want to hook up a keyboard directly,
consider a text terminal. If you still want a sun keyboard/mouse it
will cost up to $45-50.
Sun makes a PS/2 adapter, cost is about $75.
Many KVM switch Mfg. offer adapters, they tend to be over $100.
My suggestion would be to *seriously* consider headless operation,
and if you find a cheap Sun monitor in good shape, then look for
BTW, a video adapter for the Sun 13W3 -> SVGA is about $25.
