I needed to install the tn5250j client to connect to the as400 here. I decided I'd just post the method I used in case someone else needed it.

This works flawlessly with SUSE 9.0 and 9.2 both (tested on both versions)

[user@linux:~]$ mkdir downloads
[user@linux:~]$ cd downloads
[user@linux:~]$ wget http://umn.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/tn5250j/tn5250j-install-0.5.7.jar
[user@linux:~]$ java -jar tn5250j-install-0.5.7.jar
[user@linux:~]$ cd ..
[user@linux:~]$ cd tn5250j
[user@linux:~]$ cd bin
[user@linux:~]$ chmod a+x tn5250j
[user@linux:~]$ 

This was the last step in creating a linux only office enviroment. All the desktop systems running SUSE of course.
