I know one for Win32, but I don't think they have a version that would
run on 80286, sorry. It's called Xwin32, and a demo (two hours per
session limit) is available. I don't remember who makes it, but I found
it on AltaVista rather easily, and so can you.

  Don't the rules say that linux requires a 386? :) As for Xish on DOS
286 I am not sure. I know there is Desqview/X (Was thinking of hunting
down a copy and playing with it at work :) But I *think* it also requires
a 386 as if memory serves it works with QEMM386

Try X-DOS from www.starnet.com.

They also make the Xwin32 others already mentioned.

I did not try to get it running yet, but of the two versions available only  
the first will be OK for you because the second uses a DOS-Extender which  
might not work on a 286.

good luck
Tobias

Check the xfree pages (http://www.xfree86.org/), they have some pointers.

Groetjes en success

1. WANTED: vt52 emulator for console or X-windows

I'm looking for a VT52 emulator for Linux.  I have one online service which
only supports VT52, so switching TERM types is not an option.  If I'm not
successful at finding one, I'll end up using an old version of Procomm under
DosEmu :-(

Thanks in advance,
Trey
