[03] MY TERMINAL GETS MESSED UP ON SOME PROGRAMS.  WHATS WRONG?

     You've either told UNIX that you're using a terminal emulation that
     you actually aren't, or you have a crappy terminal program that doesn't
     work right.  You can find out what terminal UNIX thinks you're using
     by typing "echo $TERM".  You can change this variable by editing the
     corresponding line in your  ".profile" file.  If you can do vt100
     emulation, that's probably the best choice.  If you find out we don't
     have the files to support your terminal type, mail "admins" and they'll
     be found.  If your problem is a buggy terminal program, just find a
     better one.  Telix is a good choice for IBM PC's.

     For TELNET/SSH try PuTTY, NiftyTelnet and TeraTerm .. You can find
     most of these on public FTP sites.  Check ~ftp/pub/internet too.
