1. how to set backspace as backspace, not delete?


I'm a relatively new user of linux, so please forgive me if this is a
stupid question.

I've noticed in certain X applications, like netscape and xwpe, that my
backspace key works only as a delete key in dialog boxes, etc.

This is a real pain -- how do I map the backspace key to do backspacing?
