Hello !

i have a problem, to set $TERM by virtuell terminals like 'screen' and 'xterm'
when i start 'screen' or a 'xterm' the $TERM is not set to screen or xterm, only
linux like the default. i havent worked with tic, tput, tset and infocmp many,
and i dont want to set an
alias for 'screen' or 'xterm' with setting of the $TERM-variable.

how can i set it ?
i think, in the HOWTO this can given, because many peaople dont know this

thanks, and happy hacking.
