It will probably work, however a machine of that vintage would be  
based off of X11R4 or so, while your newer systems are based on  
X11R6.  Anything that is too new will not display or give weirdness.

Specifically, I would expect weirdness with any other X Visual than  
8bit PseudoColor or 24bit TrueColor.
