My original question:

The response was I needed a VSIMM (4 or 8 meg) for the framebuffer
to work or locate more SBUS framebuffers. This is a SX framebuffer.
I will wind up most likely using some old framebuffers from the
stockroom. It amazes me how the SS20's still kick some serious ass.
I've seen time and time again a box such as the SS10 or 20 with a
user base of 500 or more users with multiple fully loaded scsi
adapters working fine. Sun makes such quality products. I'm 100%
behind Sun Microsystems for their
products which consistently perform better then expected for many
years after other Unix vendors machines have been trashed.
I was also told this information was located in the framebuffer
FAQ which I admit I hadn't consulted. Sorry :)
