Sadness!  Windowmaker *REALY* looks crappy on the Multia because of it   
particular dithering the Multia uses.

Interestingly, Windowmaker is reasonably good looking on a PC in 8bit   
color mode.

Would it be possible to use a standard PCI video card and build a X   
server using the Xfree86 video X servers?
