    the delete key thing is normal. The backspace problem is normal in putty if you are using putty, if you are using a linux term to ssh then backspace should work or at least it works in Konsole. ssh can act differently depending on the shell you are using.
    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    try to use bash if available, that's what i prefer & it works as expected, delete, copy/past, etc...
    simply type "bash" after u login to see if it's available
