You've gotten a lot of good info about .Xdefaults or .Xresources but the
answer to your question about how to enable the scroll bar in an xterm is:
This info is contained in the xterm man page as is nearly all information
about application specific X resources. Note the capitalization of the
class name 'XTerm', it is case sensitive. The man page on 'X' has a lot
of general information about X windows including a section on Resources.
The man page on xrdb would also be pertinent to this.
After you've finished this assignment ... :)
