Dude you don't need Home/End, Page Up/Down keys at the terminal, there is a
much faster way to navigate, you have to learn the Unix way :-)

In your shell type 'set -o vi' you can put this command in your ~/.profile
file, so that it's executed every time you log in. Now you have vi editing
capabilities. There are many tutorials on the internet how to use vi. Once you
learn it, you'll never want to use anything else, trust me.
