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?
