Not sure where this is going but JIC:


As to drives avoid any differential drives (The latest are LVD drives, 
and the earlier are HVD: H = High and L=Low).  

Also check out the web for more SS10 info. Keywords: Solaris 2 FAQ - 
Plenty of content on SS10.  As to a monitor, if you can track down a 
variable frequency one (like a NEC MultiSync) and I assume you have a 
13W3-vga adapter then you can utilize the onboard video.

Good Luck
