Hi there!!

Yes, I'm running a RH 7.0 box now.  My Internet connect is KT&T
Broadband.  To get speech, I'm using my BNS 640 as a terminal, by way of 
the brlterm program.  

Fortunately, the are no valuable data on the Linux side of the wall,
yet.  If a new install is required, I can do it.  This machine has Win2K 
and Linux.  I'd like to keep it this way (my job requires Win2K.  For
ease and reliability, I boot the Linux from a floppy.
