STk does not support arrow keys. You can run STk from within Emacs (using, e.g., M-x shell or M-x run-scheme) if you want to use arrow keys.
You can go ahead and run the command 'rpm --nodeps -i STk-4.0.1-UCB6.i386.rpm'. Or you could install ksh, with the command: 'rpm -i ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/7.3/en/os/i386/RedHat/RPMS/pdksh-5.2.14-16.i386.rpm'
This is a known bug that we cannot fix. The Tk calls that are needed for the 'File Save' window and the 'envdraw' command do not work on Windows9x. They do work on WindowsNT/2000/XP.
The problem was that when you unzipped the file, it automatically saved as C:\Program Files\STkWin32, so when you'd click on stk.exe, it would not execute because the path was incorrect. To solve this, you just had to drag the STk folder within STkWin32 to the Program Files folder.
To correct this, use the "-Y" option with ssh, for example: ssh -l cs3 solar -X -Y. This is not an bug in stk; it is related to how openssh sends certain X calls over the encrypted channel.
