VXT X terminal question

Hi folks,

I wonder, does anyone know what VAXstation CPUs does VXT software run on? VXT
software runs (of course) on the VXT2000 X terminal box, but can also run on
many regular VAXstations. It officially supports KA42 (VS3100 M30/38/40/48) in
order to provide a software upgrade from VT1300 to VXT2000 (VT1300 is a KA42
without local mass storage and with a different badge on the box), but I have
also heard (turned up in Google search) that it'll run on a KA410 (VS2000) as
well. This last point makes me think "hmm, it must be fairly generic, I wonder
what other VAXstations can it run on?" Specifically I wonder whether it would
run on a KA43 (VS3100 M76). I'm willing to bet that it'll handle the SPX video
board just fine, as the video in the real VXT2000 is an SPX clone, but I'm
concerned about how it would handle the Rigel CPU. VS3100 M76 was certainly in
existence when VXT2000 was designed and the VXT software was written, but did
they include support for it in the released code or not?
