I don't know what is "best" but I have some old "low resource" machines
running tinycore linux, booting straight to green.
Once you figure out persistance, just put:
tty1::respawn:/sbin/getty -nl /usr/local/bin/as400 38400 tty1
Into inittab, where as400 is a script that starts tn5250, pointing to
our AS400.

Subject: [LINUX5250] Best way to boot into tn5250 full screen

I need to set up some tn5250 terminals at work; I prefer them to boot
straight into the green screen, no gui. What linux distro and
configuration is best for this?

I have been using Lubuntu 11.10 32bit with IBM iSeriesAccess and have
some lost connection issues with the software. I would like to see how
tn5250 works.
