I found a line that needs to be entered into /etc/system in a post from
Michael Schiller, to get Solaris 9 to detect a SunFDDI sbus card.

However, I would expect that requires that I have the SunFDDI software
installed, wouldn't it?  And I've conclusively determined that I don't
have it installed, and I don't have the current version at all, as it is
on the software supplement CDs, which I also don't have.  I believe it
should be available for download from elsewhere on Sun's web site, but I
haven't had time to search since realizing exactly what I needed to
