Cool.  I'm very much interested in how you did this - I have a Ultra10
here, also with Creator3D graphics card, but Xsun only tells me "no
screens found"...

The machine actually has two graphics cards - kernel bootup says:

ATI Technologies 3D Rage I/II (VGA display, revision 0x9a) at pci1 dev 2 function 0 not configured
SUNW,ffb at mainbus0 addr 0xfebee000 not configured

... but, as I said, Xsun won't find anything.

(This is NetBSD 2.0 beta, Xsun built from xsrc, both built from the
"-r netbsd-2-0" sources on August 20, 2004).

NB: what exactly does the "not configured" line from "dmesg" tell me?

You will receive a legacy which will place you above want.
