Well, instead of X... something like SVGALib would be better... because
its less to install than X.  But.. like my machine i'm typing away on now,
only has a cheezy 256k video board in it and will have a monochrome vga
monitor once I get the money to buy it. (I stole a monitor from one of my
other systems for now) I don't want X to EVER EVER set foot on this
system!  This is my server, and nothing more.  It is not a workstation.
I do however have SVGALIB installed. And think svgalib would be more than
easy to deal with, as far as vs. X.  Doing away with dselect is not really
an option.  Unfortunately. :)
