I think you're right about that. Since the Sun monitor I was planning
to use is kaput, the only thing I have is a 17" SVGA monitor. Once I
have the new NVRAM chip in hand, IIRC, I can program the screen size
to 1024x768 from the default of 1152x900 that the PC monitor barfs on.
Then I should be able to install OS4.2 on it.
