I think you can override it with this line in vimrc:

   autocmd FileType * set foldmethod=marker

That could be a number of reasons - syntax support wasn't compiled in,
vim can't find the syntax files because they weren't installed, terminal
type isn't one that supports color, the specified terminal's termcap
doesn't exist or doesn't specify color settings, ...

Can't help you there.  Sorry.  Examples of an expansion would be helpful
- it could be some foreign language expansion.  That could be due to the
input method settings on the terminal or on vim (vim does have the
korean input method built-in if you compile with it turned on - w00t!)

What's your :set and :ver outputs?  They should give hints of the last
two issues.
