Re: Emacs broken: Win2k telnet -> linux

I'm still quite new to unix/linux.  However, I've read man pages and hunted
on the web, etc for the TERM env variable settings.  I've worked out how to
set it and tried (it was 'ansi') vt100, vt52, vtnt, emacs, etc, but they all
give me the same (or similar) results.

I seem to remember a previous install of Red Hat 7 working w/ emacs over
telnet in this way.  The packages installed this time are less than then.
Maybe it's some kind of clash of s/w...
