SUMMARY: vi problem[1]

Many thanks to all of people who give me very kindly help.
Most of them suggest me to set TERM to vt100 for Windows 
or xterm for Linux. Surly the setting of TERM is correct
for my emulator, and there are vt100 and xterm entries 
in the /usr/share/lib/termcap and /usr/share/lib/terminfo/.
Even I have tried to copy /usr/share/terminfo/xterm from
Linux to /usr/share/lib/terminfo/xterm in Solaris. 
The behaviour of curser keys is normal except for vi in the 
insert mode. e.g. -> key will add a new line with "D".  

Any idea?

Best regards,
