who all took time to try and help with my sparc 1+ problem.

i brought the offending beast into the computer lab this morning and sat
it next to three other sparc's (20's) connected to a different wyse
terminal via a switch box. i still get nothing to the terminal. if i
connect a sun keyboard and monitor i get


and no keyboard response as you might expect :).

no my question is, how to reset the eeprom with no keyboard available?
there must be a jumper on the motherboard somewhere to do this?
