[SunRescue] OT: AS/400 stuff

All reports that I've seen indicate that linux on the zSeries is capable
of exporting the display to a seperate xterm just as well as any other
linux machine.  So, you could run Xbill and have it display to an NCD
xterm.  If you wanted to check that, well a week or two ago, /. posted a
story reporting that IBM is giving free, mostly unqualified access to
linux partitions for developers.  

Porting mozilla to an IBM would more be a task caused by the "I do it
because I can" mentality rather than the "I do it because it will provide
me with tangible benifit" mentality.
