>From what I remember, the GXTRA is just a GX (cg6) with 2 serial ports
onboard for using a secondary keyboard and mouse.  You can use it as-is
with the Sun X server, or download the doubleX package to use the extra
kb/mouse ports for a different seat.

doubleX also works with normal serial ports if you build a simple cable,
it's an easy way to add extra users to one powerful machine.  An Ultra 450
with enough RAM can support 5-6 interactive seats without breaking a sweat
most of the time (using a terminal server for extra ports).
