Fixing the Backspace Key for Exceed and RedHat Linux

This is really old information back from 2004, so it may not work anymore

This is perhaps the shortest article on this site. One simple step that can save hours of frustration using Exceed on RedHat linux when the backspace key doesn't work:

In Xconfig>(Keyboard) Input, edit the keyboard file you have selected. e.g. us.kbf.

Clear the "Shifted" mapping for the backspace key. This will restore the functionality to the backspace key.
