I tried that.. There were some problems..

Local console:
1- All stuff that was supposed to be bold, was blue.
2- The screen would constanly become garbled. I would be typing something 
   at the commandline and suddenly the cursor would just jump to the 
   other side of the screen. 
3- When the system boots up, everything is white on a red background. Not 
   necessarily a problem, but it looks strange. 

Remote systems:
1- When I do either a setenv TERM vt220(or even vt100), and run pine, the 
screen turns to black text on a white background. 
2- Same as #2 above.

The thing is, I don't really want vt100/220 all the time. I just want it 
for those times when I'm working on the remote systems.
