  - To allow ordinary users to use 'vout' in MCO mode, make it setuid
    root with the command 'chmod u+s /usr/sbin/vout'.  No-one has
    reported any security problems caused by doing this.

  - To allow ordinary users to switch from normal video output to MCO
    video output, get Hans Weber <weberh@cs.unc.edu>'s programs 'mcoGfx'
    and 'consoleGfx' from ftp://viz.tamu.edu/pub/sgi/hardware/mco/, compile
    them and do 'chown root.sys mcoGfx consoleGfx' and 'chmod u+s mcoGfx
    consoleGfx'.
