You probably want to check E-Bay for things like these:



(Although this one you should ask if the keyboard is included.)

If you're not dead-set on a terminal to plug into the thing then spend $70
from www.ericom.com and get a copy of Powerterm 32 which emulates a terminal
on the PC.  It's clean, easy to use, and will talk to just about anything.
I use it to talk to all my "headless" (without monitor and keyboard) Sun

Hope this points you in the right direction!

Okay, I have NO IDEA what I'd be looking for, or even where to begin to look
for something like this?  Is there a website I cn check out, or company I
should call?  I'd prefer not to spend TOO much on this, as it's going to be
just a crash & burn system to teach myself more unix, but would definitely
like to get it up and running again.
