Thanks, Martin.  I'm going there right now.  From what you say that is 
exactly what I need if I can easily keep the users off the LAN by 
restricting them to telneting to the SCO box.  These are far from being 
trusted users.  The connection will be used by a large companies staff 
for everything from accounting system updates to reporte generation, 
and printing.  I don't want them playing there :D.  The more I talk the 
more this sounds like a VERY restrictive jail.

Thanks again,
