Thanks. Tekbase helped on #aolserver too. I want to get monitoring working correctly by default. Does it make sense to add TERM=vt100 (or something else) to the run script? Seems kind of strange to add it there, but I could not find any flags in the top man pages that force it to run without asking for $TERM. What is the best thing to do in this case. Go ahead and add the variable? Add it as a comment (and add some documentation to the package)? Let me know and I will do it.
