Can anyone show me how to make control-L key combination clear the screen.  It works on my other computers but in this configuration it is not working for some reason.

If anyone knows a few things to check that's all I really am looking for.

Ctrl-L works for me with my Putty connection quite happily. Things to check:

1.   Terminal emulation.
2.   Screen transalation character set
3.   Key trsalations (xmodmap) if an Xterm
4.   loadkeys and the keyboard map /lib/kdb/keymaps

ah ... maybe it's because I used dvorak?

at the terminal once I probably did this: loadkeys dvorak/dvorak.  Would that do it?

Also some more information: it works fine from home (using putty) but not from work(using the ssh client from slackware 10.2).  Any thoughts on this extra info?

Possibly? - From what you've said, it sounds as if your setup is fine, and the problem is the slackware 10.2 setup. Have a look in the .bashrc/.bashprofile files for anything unusual. Also check whether there are any . files in the home directory that may relae to a keboard change (.kb files). This is on the Suse system.
