Summary: V240 and monitor problem [Sun Managers]

I used <cntrl> <pause> which sent brak and brought the system to OK prom.
Then next time around I chose Dec vt100 terminal and I was able to install OS from terminal.
Then I installed video card drivers with SUN USB keyboard plugged in and it worked!
