What's the "hercules emulator"? Is this emulating a Hercules graphics
card? (Doubtful, but I thought I'd ask!)

Speaking of 3270 style terminals, I picked up a 3180 terminal. I like
the spring-loaded rising pedestal on it! However, I see that it
doesn't talk normal RS-232 like most terminals, it has a coax style
connector on the back.
Does this mean I need to get a token ring setup as you describe above
in order to get it to talk?
If yes, what would I need to get? Assume I know nothing... because
that's accurate :).
