Hi all.
Recently, I tried to telnet to another ISP on which I had an account
and after I entered my password, and the "last login" line came up, it
said "terminal type linux unknown", and dumped me.
when I tried it using Hyperterm on my other machine, it worked since
Hyperterm was set to Vt100.  How do I tell Linux to tell the telnet
program to tell the remote host i'm using vt100, or one of the vt
