I forget the exact details, but the monitor has to support either multi-sync
or fixed frequencies (I don't even know if they are two different words for 
the same thing).
Out of about 8 CRT monitors I have tried only two have sync to the signal, all 
LCD's I have tried have worked immediately.

Someone else on the list can correct the details, but the general point is PC 
CRT monitors don't  sync to sun framebuffer signals. Failing that if you wish 
a definitive answer, look at the Sun docs, or use google.
