Thank you! I tried cons25 first and it worked very well.
Since I am still actually receiving via the linux terminal
definition, I was surprised it worked as well as it does. The
cons25 must use many of the same escape sequences that vt100
style terminals do. The arrows appeared to work and the screen
seemed to be formatted well enough.
I left $TERM set to cons25 and tried vi on a file. It
started out okay but some of the escape sequences are not
compatible as things soon got messy. Even so, it is nice to know
that sysinstall can be remotely run without too much
