Hi.  I recently tried to install X.  Weird enough, the installation 
process seems to have gone all well.  Since I have a Picasso II, I 
decided to use Xcl as the X Window manager.  According to the README, it 
says that the files /usr/local/X11R6/lib/xdm/Xscript and 
/usr/local/X11R6/lib/xinit/Xserverrc should have the command:
   X -mono -dev /dev/grf3
to make sure it comes up.  I tried this to no avail.  I keep getting the 
error message: "mondef not ok" and it comes back with no change.  Just 
for curiousity, I tried using -dev /dev/grf0 instead and the entire 
process went uninterrupted, but I saw nothing on my screen.  I also 
noticed that moving my mouse and holding down the left mouse button at 
times, would cause some system response; I just couldn't see anything.  
Does anybody have any idea what's going on?  Is there some file I'm 
missing or do I need to reconfigure my system or something like that?

One final question:  My system is an A200 w/G-Force '030 25MHz.  I 
currently have a total of 9MB of 32bit memory on the board + 2MB Chip 
RAM.  The 9MB are divided into 2 segments of 5MB, and 4MB respectively.  
When I boot netbsd, It reports that it's using the 5MB.  I would just 
like it if it could use all the memory available so that X could run a 
little faster.  Here's a "dmesg":

If *anyone* can help me I really will appreciate this!  I'm trying so 
hard to get X going, I'm almost desperate.  Thanks again :)
