Xterm : can't get prefs to be permanent


I'm using knoppix 3.2( debian).

I created an .Xdefaults in my home directory and put some settings in for xterm.

I did xrdb .Xresources and everything was great until I rebooted.

I had to run/have to run xrdb each time I boot to get the prefs to stick.

Can anyone tell me where I need to set things to make my .Xdefaults permanent?
