 Here's how I accomplished this:

 1) I wrote a tiny script that I put in ~/bin that spawns aterm, with all
the eyecandy, puts it on the right place on my desks, and runs top. Note
the -name option, it's important in #3
    ex:
      #!/bin/sh
      aterm -geometry 80x24+10-10 -tr -fg red -sh 100 -name myterm +sb +ls
-fn 9x15bol d -e top

 2) ~/G/L/A/autoexec contains the lines:
    Function "InitFunction"
   <excised for clarity>
    Exec    "I"     sh ~/bin/myterm &
    <excised for clarity>
    Function "RestartFunction"
    Exec    "I"     sh ~/bin/myterm &

 3) ~/G/L/A/database has the following line, which takes all the window
decorations off, glues it down, and makes it "passive"; ie, it won't
accept commands. You'll want to set yours up differently if you want to
make your terms interactive:
    Style   "myterm"        NoTitle, NoHandles, Sticky, NoFocus, 
WindowListSkip, StaysOnBack, ViewportX 25, ViewportY 10

You can see it in action on my webpage http://208.12.21.18 > Linux > My
Desktop

 Hope this helps!
