Thanks a lot for all who responded, too many to list. All I needed to do is
to hook a terminal ( 9600 8 N ) using a null modem cable to ttya on the
system and the system automatically senses that and directs display to the
terminal. As for my second question on how to get to the OK prompt I needed
to hit the break key! Here is my 2 questions:
Dear Managers,

I just got a new E-3500 with Solaris 8 media and an A5200 array. The weird
thing is that there is no monitor or keyboard/mouse on the order! I know
that you can use a dumb terminal as a console for operations, but can it be
used to install Solaris 8 and how?
