Sun V100 dont and cant have framebuffer, so certainly you dont *need* a
framebuffer on the E250. It's a nice to have.
I'm assuming you have a workstation of some sort that can do X Windows?
Even a Windows box can be coaxed into that. I typically connect using
Putty SSH with X forwarding and use Reflection X. Or even reflection X
straight, depends on your network topology. Else you can look into using
a linux distro or solaris x86 on a PC. Or a more exotic box running a
different architecture, like an SGI Octane. With the exception of
Solaris x86 on a PC, you would need to learn yet another OS.
