:-))  (that's me, v happy!).  Thank you and thanks to

I never thought that a diff telnet client would do the trick.  Brilliant.  I
got hold of TeraTerm as you suggested and it's much better than the Win2k
one.  It's much clearer than on my monitor connected to the linux box, so
I'll most prob use that instead now.

As payback for helping, maybe if you don't know of this, it will be of use
to you...
Magazine PC Pro (normally v biased on Win32) has a new section "Unix
Servers", in which was a link to AT&T's VNC (Virtual Network Computing) GPL
s/w.  It allows you to set up another X server on your unix/linux box and
remote control & view it across tcp/ip on any other platform (eg win, mac).
It's excellent, I'm using it now.  It even works through a web browser as a
java applet.  The win32 vncviewer.exe is only 170k!  It works the other way
too from win --> unix and even nested viewers is poss.  running the vnc
server from a win box, you can take remote control of the whole desktop from
a unix/linux box.  Hopefully this will be helpful to some people...
