      Dave, thanks for your feedback here.  I will standby for your notes on the /etc/inittab file edits & configuration. 
      Neil, I'd have to say that in this case, you are absolutely correct as far as getting this to work.  The full handshake null modem configuration worked!  See the adapter I used here:  http://bit.ly/Vx8Bfr 
      Here is what I have on my terminal now:  The prompt appears boot-up of the UNIX PC, simultaneously with the prompt appearing on the UNIX PC built-in monitor:
       
      [SERIAL/DIRECT] CONNECTED TO PORT com1 (9600-8N1)
      Welcome to the AT&T UNIX pc
      Please login: aj
      Please type the terminal name and press RETURN:  ?
      The following terminals are supported for use with the Office windows and
      menus.  To select one of these terminals, respond to the prompt by typing
      the numbers or numbers and letters shown in the first column.

      Some other terminals may work with the Office windows and menus, but not
      all terminals have been tested.
      Most terminals will work with most character-based software on the
      UNIX PC.  If your terminal is "not supported", it will probably work
      only for simple text and line-by-line data entry.  Consult your Remote
      User's Guide or the Hot Line for more information.
      Please type the terminal name, '?' for help, or 'exit' to exit,
      and press RETURN:  exit

      --------------------------------------------------------
      Now, when I login as a user that boots directly to the "office" application, the window looks very nice in my ZOC terminal emulator.  When asked: 
      Please type the terminal name and press RETURN: 
      I answer "vt100" 
      See  http://bit.ly/XtwhCV
       
      The arrow keys of my keyboard move the cursor up and down through the menu, but the "enter" key only moves the cursor to the next menu item, it does not send the command to "accept" the selected option.  ON the UNIX PC, there are separate Enter and Return keys, but not so on my modern PC keyboard which I use with the terminal emulator running on Windows 7. 
      Does anyone have any ideas what setting I might look into changing to assign a key to send a code that the UNIX PC interprets as "enter"? 
      Thanks everyone, this is a lot of fun!

        Unix EOL is ^J but you can change the stty settings to let it work with ^M
        or even ^M^J. Sorry I haven't had to do that in a while.
