Hello,

I have just installed my first FreeBSD system, 4.6 release.  I hope that =
someone will be able to help me with a couple of strange problems.

I use a standard PS/2 UK keyboard, when logging in as root the =A3 sign =
does not work it simply beeps, even though it does when logged in as a =
normal user.  I am using UK Codepage 850. =20

Also when I am logged in as a normal user I am unable to use the up / =
down cursor keys to navigate the command history, even though this does =
work when logged in as root.

Perhaps these 2 problems are just quirks of FreeBSD, I used to use Linux =
where I had neither of these problems.

Has anyone else experienced this problem, or just possibly has some =
ideas on how to resolve the problem.

Thanks in advance for any help anyone offers.

Lee.
