The default terminal...literally all I do is open terminal and "sudo kismet". $TERM is set to xterm-color.

This is so weird. I don't know why computers hate me so much. I think I'm going to format again (might as well, since I haven't reinstalled everything yet), update to 10.6.3 or whatever it is now, install xcode, then try it...then I'll try installing everything else to find out what's breaking it. I'm using an office 2011 beta, so who knows, maybe that's screwing it up. Or maybe my computer's haunted. I guess I'll know in a couple hours.
