But XEmacs is just as much Emacs as, say, Emacs 24, and more so than

brand new installation.
Let me jump in. So, RHEL "helpfully" creates an .emacs for you
automagically?!? That caught me off guard since I had never used
Emacs on the machine which we just turned on Monday.
Well, yes, but I don't know what the user is doing yet, and as
I can tell from what's been said so far the only thing wrong is that
the user thinks something's wrong. OK, I'm listening, but I can't
help until I can figure out what's going wrong.
You were right earlier. I did save the customizations just like you
do in Issue 411. But, since I didn't migrate, the customizations
went into .emacs Since I am not a heavy Emacs customize user, that
caught me off guard as well; I didn't know Emacs did that.
But, I would recommend not looking at .emacs at all and not attempt to
migrate it. That's what SXEmacs does as I understand it and I think
that's best. And, that would prevent some of these mis-conceptions.
