Question Sun Ultra60 X Windows

I have just installed debian sparc version to an Sun Ultra60. System works but I am having problems with X windows. The installation for graphical interface obviously didn't work. I am new to Linux, all I can get to is the command line prompt. How can I install the gui? I believe what I have as graphics card is 3d creator from sun. Thanks
