okay, it looks now like:

; $Id: emacs,v 1.4 1998/02/20 18:35:26 leutloff Exp $

;;--- support european keys ------------------------------- 
(set-input-mode  (car (current-input-mode))
		 (nth 1 (current-input-mode))
(standard-display-european t)

; don't use non-ascii (i.e. german umlauts) as word delimiter
(require 'iso-syntax)
(require 'disp-table)

;;--- redefine some keys ----------------------------------
;(global-set-key [backspace] 'backward-delete-char-untabify)
; the following line should not break delete char during incremental
; search - has this other disadvantages?
(global-set-key "\177" 'backward-delete-char-untabify)
(global-set-key [delete] 'delete-char)
(global-set-key [home] 'beginning-of-line)
(global-set-key [end] 'end-of-line)
(global-set-key [C-home] 'beginning-of-buffer)
(global-set-key [C-end] 'end-of-buffer)

is it okay to use \177 instead of backspace!?
