Not sure where this is going but JIC:
As to drives avoid any differential drives (The latest are LVD drives,

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.
