Sunsite has mda-0.9.tar.gz (module) and multimon-0.2.tar.gz(patch against
1.3.68), I did'nt check the incoming directory. I tried both, both
worked ok. with the module you wind up with something like /dev/mono to
which you can direct output (Now I wonder if I should have tried putting
a getty on it). Multimon works but I sometimes get some trash on either
display. It's nice to be able to run gdb on a seprate display.
