I was going through my bookmarks and such and I remembered an old gem. The default key settings in Mac OS X terminal will drive you nuts, if you are used to DOS or Linux terminal. Especially Home, End, Page Up and Page Down keys.

Fire up your Terminal, go to Preferences -> Settings – Keyboard and modify the following keys, so that their action matches the value shown. You can edit the keystroke for an item by double clicking on it, selecting “send string to shell”, and typing the indicated keys.

Key Action Keystrokes
control cursor left \033b ESC b
control cursor right \033f ESC f
end \005 CTRL+e
home \001 CTRL+a
page down \026 CTRL+v
page up \033v ESC v

That will be give you back the settings you are used to :), kudos goes to Brian Duff
