Hold down the L1 (Stop) and N keys on your Sun keyboard.

Make sure your monitor is plugged into the right place (if you have
	two frame buffers (video cards), plug in to the other one).

Make sure your keyboard is plugged in.

Now, if you don't get a console after the boot messages, you'll need
to boot from an install source, check and mount the root filesystem
and go to $rootfsys/dev and run "./MAKEDEV std".
