You mean you DON'T consider a 1.7meg executeable small. :-)

I had a client on 4.2 and converted to 5.0.  The utilities on 5 don't seem
to be the same as 4.2, but I copied a terminal def or two, and modified or
renamed them under 4.2.  I then copied these over to 5.

As to the DT100 - tell the system that it's a Wyse75 and you should be in
good shape.  (or was that a Wyse85).  The DT100 is just a rebranded Wysexx.
