  I've installed it on my 3/60, too, and it works quite well.  However,
when I tried to use the same image on my 3/50 (no FPU), I got a ream
of 'Illegal Instruction' messages on the console.

  The SunOS based Xkernel worked fine, so I'm assuming there's no floating
point emulation in the NetBSD version of the Xkernel.  Is there any way
to fix this?  I'm looking to give my Arts-student roommates Xterms &
net access, and wean them away from Windows for Everything.
