silly bash/aterm ctrl+l question


i've been messing about with different distros and stuff lately and my current setup is as follows.

i'm running slackware 9.1, my terminal is aterm and my shell is bash.

my question is, how do i set up my terminal or shell or whatever is relevant to make ctrl+l clear the screen?

it sounds like such a stupid question and there's probably a simple answer. gnome-terminal, rxvt and xterm all came installed with slackware but i installed aterm myself. ctrl+l clears the screen with all of them, except for aterm. so what have i not done? oh, and the clear command does work in aterm, just not ctrl+l
