If the OpenVMS host requires only a telnet login, you can run a DOS version of NCSA telnet or MS-Kermit. You can try installing a small Linux that can run a telnet client. I have installed Linux on 32MB '486 class machines, and used them for this purpose. This should also get you a ssh client, which your OpenVMS host may/should require. Exactly how primitive is the machine you are talking about? In my locale, people are giving away machines capable of running Windows 9X.
