Don't know about the 5250's, but your question raises one of my own.  I was
talking with a "Partner in Development" the other day, and he mentioned that
the Network Stations would only run through an NT server.  He also said that
(not mentioned in the NS installation instructions), you needed to load a
software package on the NT server to perform "swapping" that was user priced
-- starting at $3K+ for 0-20 users!  Said package supposedly eliminated the
possibility of using the NS's for his desired application, as full-blown PC's
were cheaper.  Any truth to this?

TIA,
