For what it's worth. I've lately been successfully running NCSA Telnet on a
'XT-ized' Tandy 1000A. It's got 640KB and 20MB MFM. Also, the T1000 has that
weird blend of CGA and 16-color CGA that was in the PCjr (don't remember what
it's acronym is, right now), but I have no problems running the NCSA Telnet
package. My config is set for 'CGA'.
