Hi people. Sorry its taken me so long to put this summary together. I
actually haven't even had time to reference any of the responses I
received. Many people asked for a summary, so I couldn't put it off any
My original question:
> Hi all. I would like to have just one monitor on my desk, and since I

> as well? What are my options? How can I switch between the two? The

Too many people helped to list individually. Thanks everyone. Basically
it comes down to finding a cable, or a card that supports the Sparc fixed
1. Check the archives for recent discussion:
2. Check out the following vendors:
3. Another idea:
i saw a fancy setup that allows one keyboard and monitor to control a
sun and a pc. the problem is that it costs about $900 with cables.

A| company called NuData in New Jersey that specializes in custom
cables can make up a VGA| to BNC| cable. NuData's number is 800-844-5757.
I called that number and left a message requesting their catalogue, but
I| never got anything from them. NuData does not appear to have a
WebSite, but if you do a Web search on NuData you'll likely find some
discussion of their cables in the newsgroups.
I| also saw one of those adapters a couple of weeks ago at FRY's in
Palo Alto, CA. They might be willing to ship you one. I think it was
somewhere between $50 and $75, but I| was looking for a SUN| to VGA| cable
so I| didn't pay close attention.
I cannot vouch for the functionality of the cable or advise you
about compatability, because I| haven't tried either.

I see and use a sample one that there is some special adapters
from female 13W3 to male VGA.It is possible to find one.Best RGDS.
Thanks again everyone,
