	I enabled the vt220 terminal and there is some F key function. F4 to
F10 do work. It's much better than vt100 and the sun term is all but
unusable. At least it's usable now as a standalone machine rather than
just serial console mode. I would appreciate you pointing me in the
right direction to get full kb functionality with the
sfb/wskbd/wsdisplay. Arrow key funtionality has been lost in apps. It
does work under serial console mode.
