Re: ...dos that mean..

I'm not sure; I've never really grokked DEC device numbering.  I
suspect the difference between DKA001 and DKA100 is that DKA001 is
"controller 0 disk 1" and DKA100 is "controller 1 disk 0", but that's
just a vague suspicion.

That's well into "I don't know" territory for me.

You might be better off with older NetBSD.  My 1.4T source trees have
no X stuff in them at all - though I don't know whether it's necessary
to go _that_ far back to get that property.
