Type the following command in command line:

stty erase "^H"

PS: "^H"   hold down <Ctrl> key and press VH

If it works then put in your login script (.profile, .cshrc etc)

take care using stty in rc files, at least enshure that they are executed only if there is a tty (otherwise cron, at, etc. may break)
