Yes, it is very clear what you want. The answer is no. You cannot invoke a command inside a terminal window controlling a remote shell to change the size of the existing window.

The operations of the remote shell are completely independent from the operations of the local graphical user interface that support (and sizes) windows on that machine.

If the local machine was UNIX and you were running X windows, you could invoke the X terminal window with a command to minimize (control the size) and move (control the location) of the X windown BEFORE the remote session is established.

This cannot be done with any Windows telnet program, to my knowledge. With X windows, you get a fine degree of control over these kinds of things. Your problem is a Windows98 GUI problem.... this has nothing to do with the shell program running on a remote platform.
