What, the Athlon doesn't have a spare serial port or a paralell port.  I
need a backup box anyway, so it acts as a print server when I need to
print, and a terminal server when I need to access stuff from upstairs.
Saves me buying a USB/paralell and a USB/serial adapter.  The Athlon's
one serial port is used to connect to my 3Com (USR) Courier V.Everything
external modem.  The P-II is also located in the basement (since it
makes a lot of noise) while the VT520 is upstairs.

Unix terminal handling grew up where an individual user would have one
type of terminal, it doesn't have inherent abilities to adjust features
(e.g. colours) based on TERM.  The only exceptions seem to be Lynx, Vim,
and partially mc (e.g. learn-keys gets save with TERM type).
