I can't compare it to OS/2, never having messed with OS/2.

I need to make some well-behaved, text based DOS apps available over Telnet. The
apps are stored on a Netware file server so the Solaris X86 machine would need to use
a Netware client to access the apps which would execute on the Solaris machine. I
believe that you can do this with Unixware and I was wondering if I can do it with
Solaris X86. Does everything I need come bundled with the OS?
I am also considering the Intel Co-processor board for Spark machines as it might
have some advantages such as the ability to handle more than 2 sessions. Suggestions,
comments, thoughts on this would be much appreciated.
