dt does not work with external monitors on the SE/30 (or at least with
the Micron Xceed Color/30.) Apparently it will work on the Internal
Monitor, but given both that my Internal Monitor is not working well
*and* it is in an awkward position (underneath the desk), I'd rather
not use it unless I have to.

screen *does* work with external monitors. Screen would probably work
on a dumb terminal, too. It does not use Graphics Calls as far as I
can tell. It definately aleviates the adb/scrolling problem.

The only way I've been able to get my External Monitor to work *at
all* is turn off all extensions except MODE 32 and boot with the
external monitor in black and white.

Perhaps someone ought to place this information inside the FAQ or
