What I am confused about is I am running the exact same terminal in both
Debian and the client as I did in Gentoo and I had the lines drawn in
mc. I am using the linux terminal. When I run 'echo $TERM' it says
linux and my client says linux which I have not changed from when I
connected to Gentoo.

I do all of my administration on my Debian system using either Telnet

I did a screen shot and put it up on my webpage if anybody would like
to take a look and tell me what I have configured wrong.
That looks similar to some things I saw when SSH'ing from a Mac OSX
machine to a Debian system and running Aptitude.
Switching the Mac's Terminal application over to using "xterm-color"
for the terminal type, straightened it right up.
Even if you're not on a Mac, it's a problem with the terminal
emulation of the machine you're on, and what the terminal emulation is
set up as on the Debian machine in $TERM in the shell.
You can probably find a combination that works properly though, if you
hunt a bit. Don't forget to "reset" in the shell each time you change
your terminal emulation on your machine you're testing from, if you're
not disconnecting and reconnecting.
I just connected to a Gentoo box to make sure I am correct, and yes, I
echo the term and it says linux and the lines are drawn in mc. I just
don't know where my configuration is different.
