I've been running FreeBSD now only for like a day, and absolutely love it.
I've found out a few things I don't like though. cons25 isn't vt100
capable. This is fine if it's just on my system, but if I'm telnetting
somewhere, I can't use pine, irc, or anything because it garbles up my
screen if I tell the other end that I'm using vt100. What is a reasonable
termcap to use on remote systems that don't have cons25 since vt100
doesn't work? I tried using tset to set my local terminal to vt100, but it
still doesn't work correctly. I even tried recompiling the kernel to use
pcvt instead, and it works to an extent, but looks very unpleasant. 

Thanks in advance,
