  I would presume you are using the GENERIC kernel, which does not support
wscons.  The X server distributed in 2.0 is XdecNetBSD, which only works
with wscons.  There should be a kernel distributed on the 2.0 sets which
is netbsd-WSCONS, which should work with XdecNetBSD.

  I think there may be problems with netbsd-WSCONS on the 5000/25 (which
I've fixed in -current).

  You may need to get the Xpmax X server from a 1.6 distribution, but I
think that may also fail to work with the GENERIC kernel.
