If you're using X, make sure that TERM is set to 'xterm'
Without X, TERM should be set to 'cons25'

For Emacs syntax highlighting, you need to add
  (global-font-lock-mode t)
to ~/.emacs

For backspace to work in Emacs, set
  (global-set-key "\C-h" 'delete-backward-char)

If you like a colored 'ls', alias ls to 'ls -G':
  alias ls='/bin/ls -G'
