In the last few weeks, I've been able to successfully reinstall the Cygnus
utilities on my Win32/Win95 machine, and I now have all of the following
shells working properly:

MS-DOS Shell
Bourne Shell
BASH Shell
TCSH Shell
TCL Shell

My problem is that the NONE of these is as naturally friendly as the WinTerm
that I was accustomed to using on SGI IRIX and Sun Solaris.  In particular,
I'd like to set these shells up with CUT/PASTE/COPY operations, and be able
to configure simple X-Term properties like FONT, COLORS, and SCROLLBARS.

I do have an X-Server here(RWIN by WRQ), but I never really use it for
anything other than an occasionally rlogin or telnet.  Is there anyway that
I can use the X-Server with the shells above to in effect emulate a native
X-Term window with full functionality?

Any comments appreciated.
