Put this in your ~/.inputrc for the behaviour you want:

"\M-[A":        history-search-backward
"\M-[B":        history-search-forward
Control-p:      history-search-backward
Control-n:      history-search-forward


ps: on Debian 2.0 this can be found in the bash info file
    (go to the Commands for History node)  
pps: I find that tkinfo makes info bearable :)
