There are several TN5250 clients available that are inexpensive and provide
only terminal emulation. 
Some of them are not Synapse Net Wolf. <VBG>  List member Albert York has
one, and there is a shareware product put out by Mochasoft.  Seems to me
that you can also set C/A up for only terminal emulation. TN5250 clients are
very small, easy to install and don't claim to be a part of your operating
system.  Many of them have all their resources in one directory and make no
registry entries on certain MS operating systems.

If you go with TN5250, bear in mind that there's still FTP.
