    My father gave me a Sparc 5 Server and I have a monitor hooked up to it with the VGA adapter. It powers on and beeps once then just sits there. The monitor says that there is no signal, or maybe the signal is out of range? Is there a way to correct this? I've heard there is a command that you can use to resize the resolution, but I'm a total newbie to this and just learning...any help is appreciated.

    I don't know too much about the sun platform but on alphas there's a jumper used to change the bios resolution. One of my friends has a Sparc, I'll ask him.
