Just for a bit of follow up, I did try another monitor.  The new one is
an eMachines 17" LCD that is fairly new.  

At first it said scan frequency out of range, but not it just says no

According to fbconfig, the card is set to 1280x1024x60, which is what
the LCD's native resolution is (and what I'm using on the U5).

Hopefull the official Sun adapter is all I need to make this work.
