Terminal (TERM=xterm) on FreeBSD doesn not accept DEL or ALT key on/in a Linux YAST2 session

Administering Linux Suse boxes makes it opf need to login onto those
boxes and use the well designed kiddy-cloaking scripting environment,
called YAST/YAST2.

The problem I face now is that I can not use DEL key to delete
characters or even use the ALT key to enforce actions like ALT-e or
ALT-d for enabling/disabling.

I tried to set environment variable "TERM = xterm" to  "TERM = cons25"
since I thought this could be a problem with the terminal. But it
wans't. Either the outdated X on FBSD causes problems or there is
another issue. I desperately need some help ...

Regards and thanks in advance,
