its a terminal emulator for the 3270 terminal type. unless you explicitly need it for a particular purpose then you probably can just ignore it.
it windows when you've got hyperterminal and you use that to open terminal connections down a serial cable or whatever you can setthe terminal type. its similar to that.
if you don't understand what its for its very likely that you don't need to use it
nope. it'll have an equivilent in windows which does exactly as chrism01 said. i assume its along the same lines as the way you configure routers and switches using a COM port but more substantial as its actually for configuring mainframes.
there is plently of info on google if you search for it but unless you've got an old ibm mainframe knocking around you're not really gonna be able to use this program
