As I replied to someone else, I think I'm going to have to open up the machine
and see if there's a part number on the framebuffer board that will help cast
some light on this.  Maybe it's a late model with a prototype FB?  Not sure,
but I installed 2.5.1 and still no finding the framebuffer driver.  -- Ian

Interesting. I have a b/w Voyagers, which claims to have a bwtwo. It runs
stock Solaris 2.6.

Then I am lucky too :-) I am a bit disappointed of not having the colour
version, but at least I have the original compact keyboard and the carry bag
as well.
