*Deep Bow* My mistake 'O wise one. Humble apologies for my newbieness! ;-)
It's funny though I have a frame buffer from a company called Vigra(?) that
causes a system to not come up unless it's the only SBUS frame buffer in the
box. Shame too since it's got a standard SVGA connector on it which would
allow me to port my Sparc 2 from work to home easily without having to buy a
Sun monitor at home. Other than that it's a great little SBUS card.
