Thanks for the info Doug. A friend of mine set me on the right path. I have been using vi in linux, except it was not vi. Vi was aliased to vim. I had installed vim on my FreeBSD server the other day, but that did not fix it. I found out that it has to be run with 'set nocp' so that it does not run in vi compatibility mode.

I did this and now my backspace and delete work like I want them to. :)

I appreciate the replies.

For vim, my favorite is this:
cp /usr/local/share/vim/vim70/vimrc_example.vim ~/.vimrc
