How do I clear everything from my screen in my 2500 router?

I am sure that I have no idea what you are referring to nor do many others. Your 2500 router does not have a screen. If you mean your communications terminal program then that is different and there are at least a half dozen different communications programs in general use. The OS, windows or Linux also comes into play. If you are using hyperterminal and you want to clear the scroll back buffer then just go to edit and you should find clear visible screen and clear backscroll buffer. Press enter to redisplay the prompt.
I recall the version that comes with windows has several bugs and you want to go to hilgraeve and update it to the free private version called HyperTerminal PE. Go get it here http://www.hilgraeve.com/htpe/index.html
Oh if you are having problems with messages overwriting your lines while you type then you might try adding these commands to your config
line con 0
exec-timeout 0 0
The first stops the router from timing out and printing the con0 is now available and press return to get started messages while you are reading your books
The second command makes sure that output messages do not get written on the line that you are typing on.
