Cursor Keys in vi?

OK, so I'm a stupid, clueless vi(m) newbie. Cursor keys work fine for me on my 
RedHat 9 base system. But when I try to edit a file while chrooted into the 
LFS partition, things get wonky. When I'm in insert mode, any cursor key 
inserts a new line with a single uppercase character at the top. Why? What 
have I done wrong/not done? I've accomplished all the steps through chapter 8
