Not dumb WYSE terminals.  Those are strictly ASYNC devices.  They hookup
fine to an ASCII WSC, but that's it.

Of course, if he wanted to retain the UNIX system they were hooked up to,
he could use the terminals to access TELNET on the host and logon to the '400.

Regardless, VT100 emmulation is a pain to use on an ongoing basis.
