If they are telnetting to a UNIX or VMS host already, try setting up their
default login process to execute Lynx when they log in.  (Lynx is a free
text-based Web browser for those operating systems.)  If you set your home
page as the default page for Lynx, it will pop up when your users telnet to
your home page, or you can make it part of a menu of options for your telnet
