I have a need to connect an old pc to a unix server, like in the old days of a dumb terminal. I have found a way of changing the windows shell so that it boots straight in to a telnet session. Can the same be done in Linux?

If I understand your situation correctly, you could get a flashdrive-size linux or something and set it up such that you boot up into command line mode, then you could manually or automatically have it ssh into a *nix server and basically run a remote session form there. Just use the local box as the "dumb terminal" to ssh.

Well... you have to log in to Unix/Linux. It would be very simple to put a telnet command in your .profile. If you put an "exit" command AFTER the telnet command, exiting the telnet session would log you off.
