I can think of the following possible solutions:
1. terminfo is messed up for vt100. Have you tried something
else? "screen -T xterm" or such.
2. Your terminal emulator is broken/buggy: Have you tried xterm?
3. Maybe Redhat 8 uses UTF-8 by default which might break things
as well. Have you checked this? Have you tried to switch to
iso-8859-1 or similar?
