I recently purchased a (gently) used Sun Fire v250 for use as a workstation. The machine had a graphics card installed by a previous owner, but I accidentally reset the factory defaults on the SCC (I was having a boot problem, and apparently a brain problem).
My question is, how do I connect over serial to make the default boot up options 'screen' instead of 'ttya'? I know from the oracle docs that I need a specific type of serial cable, but I'm unsure where exactly I can go about finding this. Also, once I get the cable what software (for *NIX or windows) can I use to reset the SCC?
