[ale] X Windows

Ooops, forgot a step. After you do the following, execute 'xterm' linux box
to activate it. Sorry... :(


Here is a link to a free xserver for Win95. Download both files at this link
and install on your Win95 box. Then in a telnet session from the Win95 box,
execute this command ->> export DISPLAY=MY.IP.ADDR.HERE:0.0

You can then exit the telnet session and run via xWindows. Pretty slick.
