I think that the ftpd and telnetd questions have been answered already.

As for X, the server is called XalphaNetBSD.  There is no configuration,
just run it.  :-)  I think that the out of the box xdm will `just
work', too.

If you need to change the screen resolution, there are some jumpers
on the motherboard that you need to change.  (This is because the
firmware actually sets the card up in the right graphics mode on
boot---there is no `text' mode.)

[p.s.  the X question would've been answered more quickly on the
port-alpha mailing list, I think, since it is pretty alpha-specific.]
