Re: using arrow keys in emacs

when i use the public computers at school, i can use the arrow keys in emacs
but they don't work when i use my own laptop, on which i use teraterm...

the arrow keys DO work on the windows telnet program, but for some reason
emacs doesn't refresh the screen properly (such that the top line fills up
the entire screen when i scroll up), and that's why i am using teraterm.

i don't know if the above info helps, but thanks.
