Also, the command "words" helps here; it seems that sun's support for
fixed resolutions, e.g.
setenv output-device screen:r1024x768-something-something
is actually a call to an OF routine attached to the frame buffer;
"words" will give you the list of OF routines attached to that node
in the tree, and that, (among other things) includes the supported
resolutions for frame buffers.
The SUN Frame Buffer FAQ is very, *very* helpful on questions like
this; it can be found at http://www.sunhelp.org/
