Hi Thanx to e'one who replied, this list has been a great source of

John Malick []
Todd M. Wilkinson []
Salehi, Michael E []
Pyne, Jeffrey []
David Foster [] (for the script that identifies what
kinda card you have)
Aaron []
Samir Sethi []

It came out that I dont have the proper drivers installed in the system.
Actually the Raptor 24-bit PCI based frame buffer is not supported on an OS
before Solaris 7 5/98. (as per SunSolve srbd# 19271).

Also in the Sun Solve, ( after all this mails educated me what all to look
for) I found out that I need 2 packages :-
        TSIgfxOW (GFX OpenWindows DDX for Solaris 2 (v2.1))
          TSIgfxdrv(GFX drivers for Solaris 2 (v2.1))

Although they are shiped-in with all the other versions.

Thanx to e'one again.
