I am running RedHat 6.1 on an AMD 400 Mhz puter w/ 128 MB ram.  It has an uptime of 93 days with no problems.  Just today I logged in on the box using TTY1 and it won't let me use programs like info, or pico, or anything that requires anything other than a dumb terminal.  I know it is set to a dumb terminal, and so are all my other tty*.  What or where do I edit so that linux recognizes the terminal correctly, other than a dumb terminal?

I don't know why it doesn't know the terminal type, but you can easily set it with "echo TERM=your-term-type". It's not obvious from your question what the terminal type should be. On the console it would be "linux".
