  I got two cat5 cables, a 2meter DB9 serial cable, a RJ45/DB9 and 
RJ45/DB25 adaptors with the V480's/3310's I got. I was able to
configure both devices from my sunblade 150 without anything else.

  I wired up the second gigE port on the V480 to the raid with
a crossover cable. If I need to get to the raid I just need to
bring up the second interface and telnet to it from the V480.
