OK, I'm finally getting back to this.  In the .tn5250rc file, where do I
make this entry - I have three hosts set up, so do I put simply
"-underscores" inside each host entry? Also, I still need a suggestion
for the function key problem.

Also, I went to the tn5250.sourceforge.net site and tried to download
the HOW-TO but couldn't get to it, does anyoen have the latest link?

Thanks for the help and patience,
