There are actually two (!) implementations available for X11 support
on the mono 3100. I have been working with it on my /m38 and hope that 
I soon will have it integrated and working.
There are still some problems with the mouse/hw cursor/switchable virtual
ttys though.
Unfortuantely there are too many changes to the kernel to be able to 
back-port it to 1.5, at least until this release.
While here; many thanks to Emil Öberg and Matthew Fredette that wrote 
the two implementations!
