If pico works aallright for you you might look at nano. I haven't had problems
using pgup/pgdn and the arrow keys in pico, nano, emacs, or vim, so maybe there
is something screwy with your terminal. Are you working directly from the
console or over telnet or a serial console? If the latter then you may need to
make sure that your terminal emulator is emulating the same thing that linux is
