sun monitor connected to a PC?

    I have an old sparc 10 machine and a sun gdm20D10 monitor.

    I had a dream about using the monitor on an IBM PCI bus system

    Are there any video adapters that would mate this monitor to PC
    system? It appears to be an RGB type cable but that's about all I

    Or is there a dangle/interface that would make this monitor look like
    a SVGA monitor?

    I planned on setting up a computer room for my madness and would like
    to get a black box switch that would switch 1 monitor/keyboard between
    2-4 different computers.. If this big monitor could be interfaced
    with such a thing ... fine.

    any info would be appreciated.

    I think its "sync on green"
    Well it does not have the range of frequencies of SVGA monitors so unless
    you run X on Linux you may have trouble.
    Do a search on "fixed frequency monitors" for info on PC Graphic adaptors
    that will drive it on a PC

    I think you're thinking of DEC (and perhaps HP/SGI/IBM??). I believe
    Sun uses composite sync.
    The OP would be better off selling it and buying a 20E20, IMHO.
