I just rescued an Onyx Reality Station (nice :)

The system boots and I get a login prompt on tty1. However, all I get on
the monitor is a blank screen with a red mouse pointer. I have attached
the correct keyboard. In fact, I was able to log in as guest on tty1,
and after typing guest^Mguest on the keyboard, I noticed another guest
being logged in via X. Still nothing but a red mouse pointer. Does this
sound familiar to anybody? I use an SGI GDM-20E21 monitor. It's not the
monitor cable.
