There is a SLIP stack, and mailing soft, but since this has
never been greatly incooperated into the OS, everythin has
to go togeter. Try a search for marinetti - thats a telnet
with his own stack (can also be used with som other packages).

But I think, if you could give them a unix account with
Lynx and Pine and a way to download anything should go
well - maybe using marinetti. There is also, a suit with
several apps in development, I don't remember the name,
but I guess if its graphical it needs transwarp or some
other speed up.


Ich denke, also bin ich, also gut
