What do you mean by configure the ASCII mode???
Do you mean switching to a text console? In text mode this is done with ALT Fx but in xwindows you will have to press CTRL ALT Fx.

Mik, I believe what he is referring to is when you are in MS windows and you hold down the ALT key and then press the number keys on the keypad. When you release the ALT key, it prints a character that you can't type from the keyboard. He wants to know how to do that in linux X window. I don't know how to do that.

Oh I don't really know how to do that either, but maybe this article explains further:
