I would like to try a text based mail program to see just how it would look and
feel.  I can't visualize looking back thru 50 or 100 e-mails in text mode for 
one from "Charley" last Christmas to get his address or try to re-read what he
said about Aunt Tillie.

Can text-mode bring up a web page?  Probably the best thing would be to forget
the internet for this machine.  My real intention is to use this machine as a
server for my more powerful linux box and my windows box.  As a server, GUI 
not be needed anyway.
