So far it is running OK (sort of) on my Ultra 5 on Solaris 9 .  I did
need to add "-dpi 72" to the /usr/dt/config/Xservers line to stop it

Thanks!  Will play with it some more ...

I may have a line on NS3.3 for Sparc, so will be happily looking

MIME, then I would be happy with the NS3.2 for Intel that I have
