It's not really possible to send you screen shots, but someone could
send you dumps of X screens.  I'm not sure why this might be necessary
as it's pretty much like any other mono X session...

Obsolete...  ;-)  The current kernels should use text debugging instead
of gray bars.

Well, that depends.  You should make sure that it has a PMMU in it.  The
Mac II's CPU is a 68020 which didn't have an MMU built-in.  Apple had
something called an HMMU that most machines were shipped with--this
allowed one to do basic, fixed memory mapping.  To run A/UX (or maybe
even the MacOS with VM--I'm not sure), you need a real MMU (Motorola 68851).

If you want X, you'll want to use as much of that 105 as you can spare.
If you want to compile stuff, too, you'll definitely want to use as much
of it as you can.
