X on ultra sparc 30

have a Sun Ultra 30 creator with a strange graphics card. I have been head over heals trying to figure out what it is. I have taken it out, and found nothing on it that tells me what chipset it is. I have successfully installed debian-sparc on this machine, but No matter what I do, when I try to start X it gives me the no screens found error. I tried this on generic vesa, vga, and fbdev drivers. I really don't know where else to go with this. I also tried installing a (known working) pci graphics card in this machine, but for some reason, the computer will not recognize it at all. I have no idea how to go into the cmos, (if there is such a thing) on this sparc station. This is the first sparc ive ever dealt with. I know linux/ubuntu quite well on x86 and ppc machines. I have searched the net up and down, and can't find anything pertaining to my problem. Is this something that is supposed to work? or not? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
