And the client package still includes a terminal emulator and an X-11 
server.  However it does not run on LINUX to my knowledge.

For LINUX, all you need to do is have an X-11 display running and have 
the OpenVMS host display what ever you want on it.  You can set up 
scripts for rsh or rexec on LINUX to pop the windows up from a menu.

KERMIT is also a good cross platform terminal emulator, and IIRC there 
are versions of it for LINUX.

But the original poster is clearly on the wrong mailing list.
