This isn't a question. Last night on undernet I was asked "How can I get
the combonation alt-w to open an aterm. I tried to explain it but I was
very tired and there was alot of traffic in the channel. So here goes
again. 

First find a feel file that you like. You could use any feel file but that
might entail a larger amount of work to get it where you what it. Once you
have found the feel you like. Create the directory "feels" in
$HOME/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/ . Then copy the feel you kind of like
into G/L/A/feels/ and rename it to something like feel.yourname . 
Open feel.yourname with your favorite text editor. About 3/4 the way down
there is a section called "Calls". This commented out section contains a
list of all the currently availible options, and a _very_ brief
introduction to keybindings. I would advise starting at the very bottom so
you can keep all of your changes together. After you have finished
editing the feel file. Click Start>Desktop>Update startmenu. Then Click
Start>Desktop>Feel>yourname. Walla. Your key bindings should now work. But
you are still wondering how to press alt-w and get an aterm.

###
#Your keybindings
Key w	A	M	Exec "aterm" exec aterm

That should do it. You can pass aterm any of the options you would
normally pass it, on that line. Such as:
exec aterm -tr -sh 60 -bg black -fg white
or whatever you use. 

Note- As I have only used AS from a tar ball I downloaded and not the one
that "came" with the system. These instuctions worked for me. 
Thank you F.R. Larsen for helping me with this same issue back on the 31st
of May.
