Where can I find this qterminal, or the link to the page the explains how to install qpe images?

I'm using the Qtopia image now and am desperately in need of a terminal emulator.

A linux phone keyboard pretty much has to have control and escape at least, plus obviously the slashes and pipe symbols, and for some apps the function keys might be nice. It sounds like the OpenMoko multitap is easy to configure to get those, which is great. I hope the Qtopia keyboard is too.
