It looks like the 386i had some frame-buffers with keyboard & video on
them both, but the connector from the handbook looks bigger than a
DA15, which would definately what a Type-4 keyboard would have used
that came with this system. The handbook also doesn't describe the
pinout as far as I can find. 


Also, AFAIK, the SunVGA card was a means to display a DOS window running in a
DOS emulator on the main screen.

Ie. read the review here.


At least with the handbook entries above (go to
http://www.imhans.com:1004/syshbk/Systems/Sun3/, search for the 386i
string), the OP would be able to figure out what boards/options are in the system.
