xterm meta key


I am on slackware, and am really frustrated with xterm. As I love using emacs, I have got to have Alt as my meta key (not ESC, as is the current config with xterm). I have searched google, and have tried a few of the suggestions, but nothing seemed to work.

By the way, if I use another v-terminal, all is well, but I really like to use xterm. Can anyone offer any suggestions on how to set alt as my meta key?

xmodmap output
Code:
shift       Shift_L (0x32),  Shift_R (0x3e)
lock        Caps_Lock (0x42)
control     Control_L (0x25),  Control_R (0x6d)
mod1        Alt_L (0x40),  Alt_L (0x7d),  Meta_L (0x9c)
mod2        Num_Lock (0x4d)
mod3      
mod4        Super_L (0x7f),  Hyper_L (0x80)
mod5        Escape (0x5d),  ISO_Level3_Shift (0x7c)
stty -a output
Code:
