Getting Sun Sparcstation 10 to recognize its graphics card

Working from this page to configure my sparcstation 10 after NVRAM

...but curious is there an installation manual or whatever specific to the
video card in my system, a TurboXGX with STP3010GPA chip

I have Solaris 4 installed.  I am guessing around trying different things.
With help I have the OS installed but so far I can't get the system to
recognize the video card and Sun keyboard.  With these installed it freezes
the, I am using a serial terminal to interact with the system.
The video display I have is an SGI GDM-20D11

Eventually I'll poke through to the solution, this is my first Sun box, up
to this point they were "too new" but I'd like to learn how to perform a
system install.

If I find the answers I am looking for I'll post here.
