Are you using X or console mode? In X, you can edit your XTerm file and map the help key to whatever you want. The file gets installed (on Red Hat at least) in /usr/local/share/tn5250/XTerm Simply add a line for the key you want to map. I put mine on the Esc key for convenience, so my XTerm has: <Key>Escape: string("\033\110") \n\ I don't know how to map with the Alt key pressed, though. And I'm not familiar with console mode keymapping - but Alt-F1 is used to switch to virtual terminal 1, so you probably wouldn't want to remap that anyway. > Also, regarding the sysreq ctl-c, does that work like it should for > everybody?

Pressing CTRL-C brings up the sysrq menu as if you had pressed SysRq then Enter on a regular terminal (or Client Access). +--- | This is the LINUX5250 Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to LINUX5250@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to LINUX5250-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to LINUX5250-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
