I don't think that I misunderstood the text. I understood it just as 
what you wrote above. I wasn't very clear but what I wanted to know was:

A) How to configure the PC to make it possible for the C64/C128 to act 
as a telnet client. I think that Adam has described in his Usenet 
message how to do this when you use Lunix on the C64/C128.

B) If anybody has implemented special clients for email, Usenet etc. to 
use on the C64/C128 once it can be used as a telnet client. I think that 
you have answered this, at least partly, by writing that the latest 
version of Lunix has a simple email client. You also wrote about c64net, 
which I think is another answer to my question but I'm not sure since I 
only get PAGE NOT FOUND when I click on the link you provided.
