A) Tinyfugue runs like a dream under linux. Im a complete linux dummy, 
and I got it working, no sweat. (on a 486/50, and also a 486DX2/80) 

B) On our box, we created a "guestMOO" account, and set its shell to 
/bin/tf - then create a .tfrc that automatically connects to the MOO on 
our server, and sets the restriction levels to prevent executing shell 
commands, or telneting to other sites. It's reasonably secure, and has 
the added advantage that TF is MUCH MUCH nicer than vanila telnet for 
accessing the moo.  


Good luck to ya...
