Find a twinax terminal to get started. Your time is more valuable than the
couple hundred bucks you might have to spend on a dumb terminal.

Subject: AS400 9406-620 console connection
I recently acquired an AS400 9406-620. I am not sure what is installed on
it, I received it in "as-is" condition from a 3rd party (scrap dealer). I
need to figure out an inexpensive way to get a console connected to it. I
have seen some cheap IBM 5250 PCI cards on eBay - are drivers still
available for these? What software do I need to have to make it work? Or
should I try and find a terminal?
