It will go to 1152x900 iff your monitor supports that particular res.
If not, it will default to 1024x768. This is evident most often on
the very low end sun monitors.

Now THAT's odd...

ok cd /iommu/sbus
[look at what's there, keep drilling down until you hit the
cg6/cg3/whatever, and cd to it.]
ok .attributes (or .properties, whichever your PROM supports)
