Hi, I am the proud new owner of a used Ultra 80.  It is currently running solaris 9 but I want to put freebsd on it because I am more familiar with freebsd.  Before I do however, I need to figure out a few things.

1.  How do I tell what video card is installed in the system?  Solaris says afb0 whic isn't very helpful.  I opened the case and looked but the card has no labels other then serial numbers.  It is in a pci slot.

2.  Does the onboard audio work in bsd?  Is there any voodoo that needs to be done to make it work?

This machine is my desktop machine.  I use it for writing and printing, surfing the net, IM and email.  What is the status of the ports collection on sparc?

Thanks for your time folks!
