Haven't tried it yet. I need a null-modem cable to see what is happening on the console. The video card seems OK but I cannot get video output on a VGA monitor (even with output-device=screen). Anyway, for now I could only get a female-female DB25-DB9 null-modem cable. And, since this SS10 has also a female COM port, I need to order a male-male converter. Well, this is troublesome but I think I will get it working.

I will check it as soon as I get the SS10's console shown on my PC.

Thanks! The HDD that was shipped with this SS10 is high (3.5 cm), and I was just interested if I buy a rather old 50-pin SCSI HDD (4 Gb), will it be backwards-compatible with SS10?
Sorry to sound very lame, but this SS10 is the first Sun machine of my own, and it came with no documentation.
