Stealth '911 or '924 ? There is a well-known Problem with Diamond and their
clock generators. Don't supply clock values, let the X server probe for them !

To me it looked like the server already fixed that at run time.

XSERVER: absolutely necessary - he had it in his kernel because a VT was
successfully allocated. UCONSOLE: only if you want a "console" window with
messages in it. SYSVSHM: X will tell you "using MIT SHM extensions" (or was
that the message generated bu doom ?-) anyway - that's what it's good for -
not necessary but will make your local progs run a little faster. The other
options: no influence on X AFAIK.
P.S.: this type of stuff should go to -help and port-i386...
