Make sure you have a ps/2 keyboard connected to the keyboard port, or else
it will default to serial port #1 (a mac style connector).

It is sync-on-green, although some video cards from SGI allow you to
override some of the settings in the PROM. Not sure how flexible the
Indy's video card is in this regard.

It might be a matter of pinout as well. I've heard some of the 13w3 to VGA
cables for Suns don't work on SGIs, and vice versa.
