Ah, Shel, you da MAN. there are indeed monitor choices in the setup 
menu, I never even thought to look before. There are two columns of 
monitor types (all HP, pre-defined) in the setup section under -- 
surprise, surprise -- monitor.

Eight of the 14 are SOG; it tells specs at the bottom when you choose 
one. Three are composite sync. (That's what I'd choose it I wanted to 
use a Sun monitor, correct?) Three are followed by some form of VGA. Two 
of those three are un-selectable; it beeps when I try to choose it. 
There is, however, ONE remaining choice, HP D1195A (SVGA) which claims 
to be 1024x768 60Hz color 105dpi Digital Sync.

The only part of that I do not understand right off is Digital Sync. Is 
my off-the-shelf PeeCee monitor Digital Sync?
