I just bought a Sun Blade 2000 and a type 7 USB keyboard from EBAY. The blade has Solaris 8 installed and while I can login, I'd rather switch to something like UBUNTU.
If I type STOP - A during the boot process, I get a white screen but no prompt that I can see. The video card is PCI and seems to work fine with Solaris. I'm not sure if the prompt is being directed elsewhere?
