The NCD X-Terminals that I've seen use the 88100, but not the 88200.
The 88100 is a CPU and the 88200 is the MMU, so without the 88200, the
X-Terminal does not have any virtual memory capabilities. NetBSD
pretty much requires VM capabilities to be present, so you probably
will never see NetBSD running on the NCD X-terminals.
