Thanks for your work on this.

The script works okay on an Ultra 10, detecting onboard ati.

One of my U60's has an afb (creator) and ffb (elite).  The script 
reported "unknown" since the afb is earlier in the node list and there was no 
clause for SUNW,afb.

To detect Creator 3D video and cg14 (SX framebuffer), add

   "SUNW,afb" ) driver='sunffb' ;;
   "SUNW,sx" ) driver='suncg14' ;;

to the case statement near the end.

Running the script triggers a watchdog reset on my SS20, so I could not verify 
correct operation.  (Probably a hardware or kernel problem.)

Does prtconf need /proc/openprom to be mounted, and are that mount and the 
sparc-utils package available during installation?

Kernels 2.6 will not require prtconf.

   /sys/class/graphics/fb0/name = "Creator 3D"
   /sys/class/graphics/fb1/name = "Elite 3D"

  /sys/class/graphics/fb0/name = "ATY Mach64"

I have only type5's, and they require an xorg pc105 map with Kernels 2.6.
