 Are you sure you want a 'terminal' program?  Normally you would start SLIP
or PPP in order to interfere with the *Internet*. 

 For both, IP access and normal terminal access you can use 'tip' for a
start, yes, even sz would work:  quit tip (don't forget "AD&D0") and start
sz like this:

 sz </dev/tty00 >/dev/tty00 

 Otherwise you might try 'seyon', available on as
binary (for 1.0 or even 0.9 if I remember right).  This is a full featured
terminal program for X.

 Ever read the Amiga-NetBSD-X FAQ?

 chmod go+rw /dev/{mouse[01]|kbd}
 chown root /usr/local/X11R6/bin/X
 chmod 4755 /usr/local/X11R6/bin/X
