[rescue] Framebuffer driver for RDI BriteLite IPX?

Hi all --

Got myself an RDI BriteLite IPX; a "laptop" (a generous description) 
based around a stock SPARCStation IPX motherboard with a very large 
laptop-style enclosure around it, a 640x480 active-matrix LCD (very 
pretty) and a gigantic lead-acid battery.  It has a handle, so it's 

Anyway -- I have it up and running and I have SunOS 4.1.4 installed on a 
fresh hard disk (the original drive was long gone when I got it).  
Unfortunately, the LCD framebuffer is unrecognized by SunOS; it 
identifies itself as cgRDI and it's a custom SBUS board that drives the 
640x480 LCD.

 From what I've been able to dig up this driver was packaged as "RDIlcd" 
by RDI but I can't find it, of course.  Anyone happen to have this 
archived somewhere?  Any other ideas?
