Thanks, I tried a similar command, but I was attempting to use kbd0 I believe.

I can definately live without the LEDs. I'll look, If there is
anything I can do to help I certainly wouldn't mind. The particular
box I'm talking about is an ultrasparc 60 that I just got my hands on,
eventually it'll run headless in my closet.. but that won't be until
I'm much more familiar with the platform. Unfortunately I sold my soul
to my fiance and agreed to get rid of my spare ss5 and a barebones
ss20 that I'd gotten years and years ago :P.
