Ever built a kernel? It's likely that you will have to do so in order to
support unconventional UltraSPARC hardware. If you look in the kernel
config under framebuffers, you'll see what video cards are supported
under console. IMO, you'll generally have the best luck with an ATI Rage
128 card (which is supported under console, and under X11 with drm/dri).

As for harddrives, you should have no problem with that. PCI network
cards should be good to (nice having the ultrasparc maintainer also be
one of the primary network device maintainers :)
