"export TERM=5250" or "set TERM 5250" (or "set TERM=5250"?) depending on
your shell. This tells tn5250 and/or terminfo/termcap to interpret the
"F100" string defined in the us5250 map as a backtab.

Oh, forgot to add that this requires the terminfo definition for the
5250 terminal, which should be installed when tn5250 is.

And I should have also mentioned that the following two mappings mean
that you have *no* control keys, meaning that control+alt+F# to change
VTs won't work, and control+Q to exit tn5250 also won't work. Alt+F#
should work to change VTs though, and from there you should be able to
log in and kill tn5250 (remember that right-control is enter though!)

and 'loadkeys -d' will load the default kernel keymap, allowing you to
get the standard keymap back.

Is it universal across all the consoles? i.e. once I run loadkeys on one
terminal they are all changed?

Since control-alt to change screens is a staple for the users now, I may just
leave those control keys alone. Control-R for reset is at least memorable.

And since it's the field+ and field- I was after most, I'm guessing I need to

keycode 74 = KP_Subtract
keycode 74 = Control_x
keycode 78 = KP_Add
keycode 78 = Meta_m

Or am I missing something?
