The value of the TERM environmental variable determines what terminal emulation will be used to display characters to your screen-- how many lines long, how to make the terminal beep or flash, etc. At the "Term = (something)" prompt, type the name of the terminal emulation you want to use. For Macintoshes and IBM compatibles, "vt100" is usually the correct emulation. For Xterminals, use "xterm".
