Solaris 8 ???'s

Currently attemting to load Solaris v8 onto a laptop, but having no luck with the display settings. Need to know which video/display settings work for a Compaq Presario 1200xl 325 model...

I am using the default low-res type settings to get a black and white picture with huge icons.

Been to Compaq who said they can't assist with non-factory installed Software. The SUN sites are no help either. Just hoping to find a quick fix... Thanx in advance .
