[rescue] Determining framebuffer driver major/minor device numbers?

So, this is kind of an oddball question, I'll provide a bit of background:
I have an RDI Britelite IPX "laptop" with none of the original OS
media. This is essentially a Sparcstation IPX motherboard crammed into
a laptop enclosure. In addition to the onboard cgsix graphics, there is
an sbus card that drives the internal 640x480 LCD, known as "cgRDI." I
currently have Solaris 4.1.3 running happily on it, and a few months
back a listmember sent me the driver binaries for the cgRDI.
I have rebuilt the kernel to include the cgRDI driver and the sbus board
is recognized at boot (as cgRDI0). So far so good.
Unfortunately, I have no idea what the device major/minor numbers are
for this driver so I haven't yet been able to create the appropriate
/dev/fb entry so that xnews is happy. Since I have no source or
documentation for the driver, I'm at an impasse, unless there's a clever
way to deduce this information.
It would be cool to have OpenWindows running on this thing, anyone have
