I'd forget having them logging in with any kind of shell prompt. I've set
something similar up in the past using a script that was their default
shell, with the "#!" statement being "#! /bin/rksh" and then just launching
the telnet app to the catalog. IF the user logs out, it returns to a
login, not a shell. Log back in as guest/catalog/whatever and it telnets
back to the catalog box.
