[rescue] Need help using cgsix in IPX

Hello All,

I've got an IPX that I've started working on a while back, but sort of 
forgot about.  I've already done the NVRAM battery, messed around with 
Openboot, and done a NetBSD install.  I haven't done anything with it 
since.... I still know very little about NetBSD, or any other Unix for 
that matter.

Any way..... I have this Sony GDM-1602 sitting here.  It's max refresh 
rate seems to much less than what the cgsix in the IPX wants to work 
with.  I tried specifying resolution and refresh rate in Openboot, but 
it still doesn't work.  Assuming I can use this monitor with the IPX, I 
don't know enough to figure it out.  If I flip the monitor off and on a 
few times, I can see the it's getting a signal, but the characters are 
sort of skewed across the screen about 3 times.  Any help would be
