>Now, suppose you are considering opening a new remote office (1000's of
miles away) with another 200 users that must also share the same data and
applications. What would be the preferred  method (ie., effective and
relatively inexpensive) of getting them online?  A bunch more remote
controllers in the new office?  Another AS/400 in the remote office using
DDM?  Something entirely different?

My first choice would be to install a LAN at the remote office for the 200
users (ethernet, CAT 5 cable, hubs, switch, etc.).  Then I would like the
two offices via routers and a 56KB leased line to create a WAN (router,
DSU/CSU on each side).  Then I would install a TCP/IP based emulation
product like Synapse WinAPPC which does display, printer, and/or file
transfer for the green screens.

Voila!
