Usually, it'w with the TERM environment variable.  For example, if you had a vt100 (or vt100 emulator) and were running a Bourne Shell (/bin/sh), you would do:

TERM=vt100
export TERM

In a C-shell:

setenv TERM vt100

If your terminal is different, pick the right one.  The ones available are in /etc/termcap
