They would like a solution that is basically "PC" free to get away from
those pesky support things/issues that always manage to occur with remote
PC's...  something that is as reliable as a terminal.

Now if a terminal can run CA and is not a PC... humm.....   (-:

I know a basic terminal would be able to connect to our AS/400, but the
keyboard mapping would have to be changed (right CTRL = enter, etc..) and I
wonder if the function keys would work properly. Is there a terminal out
there like that?

As much as I like Linux, this would be out of the question at this point..
