strange X problem

hi everyone,

i am trying to install sarge onto a sun ultra 5 and i am encountering a 
very strange X problem: startx gives me

 Markers: (--) probed, (**) from config file, (==) default setting,
          (++) from command line, (!!) notice, (II) informational,
          (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
 (==) Log file: "/var/log/XFree86.0.log", Time: Fri Jun 18 14:16:48 2004
 (==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/XF86Config-4"
 (EE) No devices detected.
 Fatal server error:
 no screens found

i fin this very weird because there is not a single line of output before 
the "No devices detected", normally there is quite some output starting

 (==) ServerLayout "Default Layout"

if i do a X -configure it says "List of video drivers", then a long list
(containing the ati driver i want) and then "No devices to configure.
Configuration failed."

background info:
the computer is a sparc ultra 5 with the onboard ati 3d rage pro running

any idea what could cause this behaviour?

cu  robert
