	This is not now, or in any way, a GNU comment. (Surprise)  I'm having
trouble with the dt on an se/30 with an external monitor. Using the July 30
dt code, I rebuild it.  The binary included wanted whereas I have
.12.0  The make built dt fine, but the delta(?) stage didn't go so well.  I
can only assume that was for backups.  Ah well, the glitch...
	I can type about three lines with only my internal monitor attached,
which is how I rebuilt the dt.  It died if I tried to run it with only the
internal attached.  I re-attached my external (640x480,exced color card)
and tried to run it... I was able to modify my .cshrc (root) to auto-magically
start dt.  It died, same messages:
	grfmmap(85):addr 10000000
	grfummap(85):dev a00 addr0
	grfunlock(85):dev 0 flag 3 lockpid -1
	<Core dumpped, made a mess on my nice clean floor>

The questions are as follows:
	1) How can I get dt working on my se/30? (Seems simple, and yes, I've
	   done the mknod... actually it was already done, eh?)
	2) I've read (README) it may not work on two monitor systems, and non-
	   640x480 monitors... Is this true?  Am I SOL?
	3) Anyone want to sell a MacII? ;-)
	4) Currently, NetBSD is running on a Sun3 system, I've been told.  Is
	   it running in good shape?  (No weird adb probs, so normal UNIX
	   should be fine, open arch, so X should be fine too.)  If so, anyone
	   want to sell a Sun3? ;-) ;-)  [For those who don't know, Sun3 is
	   running a m68k chip set like the mac.]  I'm in the processing of 
	   getting a Sun3, and would like to know more info on netbsd for it,
	   could those in the know send me info on where the faq is for this?

Thanks for your help...
