It doesn't appear to work with my new DEC monitor, so I think I'll try
to swap it for the VS, or hang on until the guy I got it from has a VLC.
I tried several monochrome DEC monitors before deciding on the colour
one, but they all looked like they were running at the wrong frequency.
Do DECstation monitors exhibit this behaviour when connected to Vaxen?

Meanwhile, does anyone know where in the NetBSD source tree will I find
the unfinished monochrome X server?
