probably won't work.  You'd need the X server to run on your local machine,
and that's 2.5M or so - running X in less than 8M is probably not worth it.
(And _that_ is with Linux -- multiply by 2-5 for anything that M$ has).

You can probably run Kermit in your environment, and (I understand) it does
support color.
