Not sure if anyone
can help - I've come into a Sun Ultra 5 system, but the base unit only - no
cables or manuals, which I want to load Debian onto.
I've had a google
around and it looks like I can use a standard PC monitor and get a sun keyboard
for it, or I can use a serial cable to connect to it.
The serial port
marked A on the Ultra 5 is a DB25 Female, and the serial port marked B is a DB9
development box here has 2 DB9 Male serial ports on it.
1) Do I have to
connect to serial A or B on the Ultra 5, or doesn't it
2) Will a standard
DB9->DB25 serial null modem cable work for connecting to A, or a standard
DB9->DB9 for connecting to B or do I have to have a special Sun cable?
This assumes that the cable comes with the correct attachments for connecting
Male -> Female/Male as required
Many thanks for
