I'm not a Linux guru or nut but also I am not affraid of the command line or 
getting my hands dirty to get things done.  I have used Linux Distrobutions on 
and off the past 6 years for various specific applications.

I just installed Xandros Desktop Ver 4.0 Professional Beta 1 on a spare machine 
at work.  I tried installing tn5250_0.16.5-5woody1_i386.deb which installed in 
prior 2.5 and 3.0 versions of Xandros Linux.  When I try now I get the 
following error.

"Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
tn5250: Depends: libssl0.9.6 but it is not installable
 Broken packages

My guess is that the Verision 4.0 of Xandros is using a newer version of libssl 
that itr doesn't like.  I have not tried compiling the source.  If it's just a 
matter of doing a "make" then I'll give it a go otherwise I may just pass on 
it.  Currently I have TN5250J running from a script file but not through the 
browser yet.  I'd like to use TN5250 as it has a smaller footprint.

One side note is that in Version 4.0 of Xandros TN5250 is no longer listed as 
an app to install via CD or Xandros Networks (Xandros online Apps directory).
