In emacs, alt-n tell the program I want to go to certain line.
However, that only work in unix environment.  Now my problem
is using NetTerm 4.2.8 in win95, where emacs no longer recognize alt key.
Any help is very much appreciated.

Have no experiemnce with NetTerm.  But under windows environment the alt key is grabbed by Windows for various resons; for example, alt-tab will cycle thru programs.  Most emulators provide a way to send the alt sequence to Unix side.  Like the left alt key will go to windows, right alt key to unix.

Try the right alt-key.  If that does not work, look under options in your emulation software(NetTerm)

Bind the function to something else in your _emacs file,
for example:-
(global-set-key "\C-x\C-j" 'goto-line)
