Both options will work, but windows 98 will have to be upgraded to a current version,and you will have to pay the licences.

I'm using tn520 (realy xt5250) in Linux and works great.

okay, cool, i got tn5250 working on two differnet machines now. one machine is running windows and the windows verison of tn5250 the other is a linux machine running redhat 8.0. the plan i have is as follows. we have five 5250 terminals with twinax. these are to be replaced. headquarters wants to replace them with thin clients, cost is 350 dollars per machine. each machine will still only be able to run a 5250 program but they can be upgraded later to get the internet of course that will cost more $$$$ and so we'll never get it. on the other hand i can get a 133 pentuim with a 1 or 2 gig harddisk and 64 meg of memory for less than 100 dollars, we have old 15 inch montoirs laying around i could use that as well but with the price of 17 inch montiors dropping the way they are i might buy new ones too. my question is this, which way should i go, the window 98 verson seems to work find and so does the linux verison. which is best, would love to hear about personal expericences. oh i forgot, the twinax system is going away we're using ethernet now with tcpip.
