	AFAIK there is no X server for these machines in 1.4.1; I cannot
comment about -current, however, so someone else must speak up there.

	As far as if it's worth doing anything with them, I guess it
depends on what you'll need to do.  I've got two 3000/300X's at home and
their rock solid servers.  Never a crash, never a problem.  I just throw
an x term in front of them, and they work fantastically for hack-value
terminals (as well as for some real-world tasks).

	Hope this helps.  Let me know if I can help with any install
issues if you plan to netboot them. (I've gone through the whole netboot
thing a few times, and I have it down almost to an instinct by now :-)
