Here's the 'ls -a /usr/lib/terminfo'

I looked in /etc/termcap (is this the right place?) and found dg460-ansi.
When I added this to the line in inittab for getty and -HUP init the
results of the login are exactly the same.
Am I doing this right? It acts like the termtype is being totally ignored,
or at least not passed to login and bash.
Is there any way that I can check the termtype of this process from the
console? That is, can I find out what termtype the bash on ttyS1 is from a
root login at the console?
