Any color Xterm will work with Solaris (e.g. NCD, Tektronix,
HDS). My personal favorite for ease of setup, maintenance, and
configurability is NCD.

Or, perhaps you mean the defunct Sun Xterms that were stripped
down classics? You might be able to get one on comp.hardware.sun
or, but they don't make them anymore.

I think I did not word the question right.  What I want is
some form of shell that will display color on a Solaris machine.

Oh, I thought you were abbreviating Xterminal! mea culpa.
or color_xterm.tar.Z
or colxterm.tar.Z
