I asked:

When I use "less" with the regular bash shell on Win98, it works fine, but
if I start rxvt and use "less" in the resulting window, I receive a
"Warning: terminal is not fully functional." What do I need to do to make
this go away?

For the benefit of others who may be having this problem, here is the
answer, courtesy of Brendan Simon:

export TERM=linux

in .bash_profile
