Stefan, my most sincere congratulations, and above all thank you for this
valuable information.

Earl, et. al, a few questions-

1) Can the 1600x1200 Sun B&W ECL monitor, which is what I appear to have,
work with the Sun 2/120
2) Does anyone know common causes for the monitor in (1) to dim?
3) Does anyone have the pinouts for the mythical type 2 <-> type 3 keyboard
& mouse passive adapter? I would like to construct one.
4) Does anyone have a spare VME framebuffer for a 3/260, and a spare sun 3
5) What's the best way to do a SunOS 3 install without employing the use of
a tape drive?

After a quick fuse replacement, my 3/260 is up-and-running.

Also, Earl, I have two 3/50s and might be interested in any ephemera you
have for them.
