Quite a few folks seem to be running X on SE/30 acceptably... I've got an 
SE/30 8/1080, running 1.2.1, but can't get X to work yet, seg fault and X 
dumps core:(  Since the system otherwise runs great, I've put this aside 
for awhile. When I have time, I'll install a -current snapshot and see if 
it helps. If you get it going, though, I'd greatly appreciate a note 
regarding your software versions...

We've got a major expansion underway at our Billerica, MA office... I'm 
sure they're looking for a few IT types. I don't know what's available, 
but check <> periodically and look for a link 
to 'employment opps'.

Good Luck in both ventures!
