I have this old Pentium 75mhz IBM 755cx Laptop that I've blown probably
100 hours on messing with NetBSD on it.

As the video chips is only supported by XFree86 version 3.x, I installed
NetBSD 1.5.3 on it, which was the last version to use that version of X.

(Previously, I installed NetBSD 2.0and X would not run on it. I tried to
compile my own XFree86 3.6.3 server, but I'm not elite enough to pull that
off successfully)

So I was wondering, what if i copied my /usr/X11R6 directory from my
NetBSD 1.5.3 system and installed it onto a NetBSD 2.0 machine? Could I
then have the benefits of NetBSD 2.0 while using the older X binaries?
