Stephen:
You could do dial up PPP or SLIP directly to the AS400 comm port (v24).  It
is pretty easy to config and you can use a US Robotics or other similar PC
modem.  Then the dial up PC just configures using WIN DUN (dial up
networking) and use the TN5250 emulator in CA or download the TN5250
emulator from Mochasoft  at www.mochasoft.dk.

Another solution that I really like and that we have installed at many
clients locations is to use a hardware based RAS server.  We have installed
many of the QuickStream Pro RAS server.  It attaches to your network via
10baseT and you can hang up to 3 modems per box on it.  It configures via a
web interface and can do both TCP/IP or IPX/SPX so you can have access to
both the Novell (if you are doing IPX) and the AS400.  Again, the client
side config is the same as above, use DUN and a TN5250 emulator and you are
good to go.
HTH,
Carl

>1.    The AS400e is at v4r2
