Unhappy PeanutLinux install : unknown terminal type ?


Hi, I'm really new to the linux world and I want to install the peanut linux distro. My problem is, on stage2, the installer ask me for "terminal type ?" and tell me that the terminal type is unknown, and I don't really know what to enter...

Thanx for your help,

T

I have not encountered this question during a Linux install, but I'm almost certain you should enter VT100 as the terminal type. That is the standard terminal type for remote login into a *nix system. Maybe someone else can amplify...
