Use a different telnet program.
A good one I've used is TeraTerm, which some created a ssh plugin too.
Remember using ssh is far more secure than using telnet. It allows all
the wonderful port forwarding features, including the X11 forwarding too,
if you want access to all those wonderful X11 GUI programs to display
on your PC - of course you need a X11 server too, and there are some
good ones for Win98, etc, search for "Xserver" (eg via google).
If you do run X11, and ssh to a UNIX server, then look to running xterm
for a great terminal session (with scrollbar) especially if run over an
ssh tunnel - for security (and compression).
has the necessary pointers to enable you to install TeraTerm, and then
to download the ssh plugin, and it seems to be free.
There might be better telnets out there, there might be better ssh
session programs for MSWindows too, but as said here already, maybe
a MSWin newsgroup is a better place to ask this question.
