Well I got it working, I removed the xemacs I pulled from the net,
used a script, yes this part worked, wrote a script with all the
options I wanted made it executable, run it. With "checkinstall"
installed xemacs-21.4.9.

Now while typing this message in gnus, whenever I hit any keys I get
this strange horizontal tool-bar in the middle of the screen, that is
annoying , don't know what is causing this...

The box said Windows, NT or better, so I installed Linux :-)
