The backspace key thinks it is the 'delete' key when using Netscape.  is there a way to setup my system so that this problem is fixed.  Currently, I have to use a program called Xkeymap each time I boot up to xwindows. I would like to be able to just change something in a congif file.

Why don't you put the Xkeymap command in your .xinitrc file?
You will not notice it, you will not need to type the command again and it will run only when you start your X server.
