Holy incompatabile Batman!
My poor company, somewhat eccentric Sun$, with its uncle Gaylord leader
that smokes used underpants always has a knack for buying
Xmas presents that are either unidentifiable, or unuseable

Sun$ crap fits into the latter category and I think we

I've recently bought a "Sun Raptor GFX 8P PGX32 PCI 370-3753 X3668A"
video card for an E220R.
I intend to hook this card up to my 15-pin XGA PC monitor.
I am concerned that I might need an adapter. I know that for Sun video
outputs that are 13W3-F, an adapter is obviously needed.
But this raptor card is a DB15-pin, and would (physically) take my VGA
monitor without problem.
I presume I'm safe, but am posting just in case - my monitor cost me
$900 last year, and I'd hate to cause it to burst into flames or some
such thing just because I wasn't educated. ;...How to identify sun hardware ?
