Unless you really, really want to use the IPX for a workstation, you'll find
that a telnet connection or serial terminal is much snappier than the
keyboard/framebuffer.  Even X on an IPX is bearable if you're looking at it
on something besides the console.  The IPX is still a very usable machine; I
used one as a file/DNS/time/mail/DHCP/etc server on my home LAN for a couple
of years.  I kept the monitor in a closet so it wouldn't warp my desk.
