You have received a number of good answers to your question but I did
not notice anyone telling you some of the really basic stuff (that I
admit you might already know). Do a "ls -A" in your home directory
(which you can get to from anywhere by doing a "cd" without any
arguments) and see if you already have a file named ".Xresources". Edit
(or create) this file with an editor (vi, ae, or whatever). In that
file make two entries:
Take a look at the xterm man page (man xterm).
Is there any way to change the colors of Xterm? mine defaults to
black on white (which gets really annoying when you telnet to a
machine using really light ansi colors), and I would rather have it
white on black..
