Jay Schulist is the initiator of this project, and I never saw anything that was
complete from him, although in his patches he did include tn5250...  He had/has
very ambitious plans for it.

<http://samba.anu.edu.au/linux-sna/>  Probably outdated
<http://www.linux-sna.org> The TurboLinux page references this one..

Alternatively there is Heterogenius Systems in the UK 
<http://www.hgsys.demon.co.uk/linux.htm>  They mostly charge though.
The SNA guy there didn't seem to upbeat about the Linux-SNA project.  
Called it vaporware :-)

Thing about that is, that for real SNA 5250 you need to support TWINAX, and
I don't know that there are any TWINAX drivers available.  

There are a number of SNA details that Telnet implementations hide, that would
need to be allowed for, but it could be done.
