We have a lot of AS400's on site and looked into using Linux to access the systems and get console access. At the time there was very little about and what there was really did not do the job properly.

We eventually just used the BOS Card's with Windows XP Home but our requirement was to get console access.

If you just need network login access you may be able to use this;

Mochasoft TN5250 is cheap and robust.  Clients for Linux and Windows.  I've used it and it works great:  http://www.mochasoft.dk/tn5250linux.htm
jools already mentioned the open source TN5250 project on Sourceforge.
There are others, too, including PowerTerm: http://www.ericom.com/pti4linux.asp

Google "TN5250 Linux" for more alternatives.  

I suggest that you look at Mochasoft and the open source TN5250 project first.

I've just used Mocha TN5250 on Red Hat distros.  Mocha just supports RH 7.3, I'm afraid.  

If you are having trouble with Mocha under Fedora, try the Open Source TN5250 project.  It works under Unix, BSD, Linux, and Windows.

I've recommended Mochasoft's excellent TN5250 products for years due to  their quality, price, and excellent "free upgrades for life" policy.  I  was recently disappointed when I was unable to upgrade from their XP  product to their Vista/Win7 product.
 
 When I requested help from their tech support, I was told "That is not an upgrade, it is a new product."
 
 As a result, I'm regretfully withdrawing my recommendation of this product after many years as a satisfied customer.
 
 Disappointing when good companies go bad.
