Question Debian SPARC Ultra 60 Question - Xserver

I have recently decided to take my Sun Ultra 60 down the Debian Linux path to see how it performs. The installation went smoothly - however I am having issues getting X to work. Not that I necessarily need as the Solaris world if very CLI friendly - however I figure I haven't mastered the OS until I can get a functioning Xserver - So here's the details

Standard Sun Ultra 60 video card (not sure what that is or where to get specs on it).

EE lines from /var/log/XFree86.0.log are
(EE)SUNFFB: Failed to load module "dri" (once-only module,0)
(EE)Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

I am using a Samsung SyncMaster 192N 19" LCD display - and can find no drivers on the Samsung site.

What scripts can I run to auto-probe the videocard and or monitor - SuperProbe is nowhere to be found on the installation ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You
