Ultra 80 Installation problems

Dear List,

I have a Sun Ultra 80 with 2 CPUs.  I burned the ISO disks for 6.1-RELEASE 
and tried to boot.  The kernel image loaded ok and I got appropriate 
information on the console.  But when it tried to boot the kernel I got.

Nothing to autoload
Jumping to kernel 0xc0000006

Not perfect on the address, but that is close.

I was reading in the archives of someone with a similar problem.  He was 
using and UltraSparc III cpu and that is unsupported.  But the first 
suggestion was that he install from the console port because there may not 
be support for the Framebuffer.

So, I'm planning to try that.  But, I'm wondering if I will be able to boot 
to video and keyboard once I install, or if I will always need to use the 
console port on this machine.  A follow on question is, can I buy another 
graphics card that would work for this system on FreeBSD?

Thanks for any help in this matter.
