[rescue] Using a Fire V240 as a desktop...

Thanks to Zach Lowry, I'm the proud owner of a Sun Fire V240 and an
Expert 3D framebuffer (which were quite lovely 21st birthday presents
to myself), which leads me to this question.. Is there any way I can
make the large, pretty noisemaker talk to the framebuffer, so I don't
have to login via serial console? Also, thanks to Zach, I've a USB
Crossbow mouse and a Type 6 keyboard, but both are, unfortunately,
useless unless I get the thing to work with the framebuffer.

I've seen a few threads online, but nothing that actually mentioned
steps to success, so I'm bowing before the font of Sun knowledge, once
more, with hopes of making a noisy dual-purpose server/space heater
into a desktop (and space heater).
