	I would definitely like to see X running on my VAXStation 3100 M38,
with hockey-puck mouse and original 19" DEC mono screen... 8-)
	I saw DEC Windows on it, before it got wiped for sale. Pretty nice,
even though it was mono. I was impressed.
	I can set it up, and contribute to testing or something. Just have
to give me a week or so... Have to talk my wife into getting a cable modem

	Linc, how's that 3100 (that you got from me) running? ;-)
