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.

wow!  that blows my mind.  Sure he wasn't thinking of NetPCs?  The
question wasn't asked, nor answered that I remember.  But the speaker
mentioned his inventory of equipment for the show.  He had an AS/400 model
150, a thinkpad, an NC unit, an ethernet card, an ethernet hub, and a
token ring card.  The thinkpad was on the token ring, the NC was on the
ethernet.  On the NC he had: 5250, IBM's small browser (spyglass),
Netscape's small browser (Navio), and one other application which I have
forgotten.  The regular 5250 green screen was mouseable  -  that was eerie
to me. 

The meeting was about Lotus and Domino, so little time was spent on the NC
machine.  However I did have the distinct feeling that NT was available
but these people didn't use it, or even like talking about it.  

In short, Dean, I really can only say...  I don't know.
