What's a 5251 display station? Looks like a terminal to me :-).
I tried finding stuff on google, but most of it is documentation for
products /emulating/ a 5251.
It appears to be part of that coax cable terminal networking stuff and
associated with a 5250 display station controller.
What's the controller do? Are the smarts in the controller with the
keyboard and display being relatively dumb?
