   Hi Richard. As you say below, it wasn't being seen because of the HOME
   environment variable not being set. So that was my bad. Thanks
   though for below and I apologize for the long false alarm !!!!!

   The relevant variable is comint-scroll-to-bottom-on-output.  The emacs
   default is nil.

   You need the value to be t.  You can set it with


   C-h v comint-scroll-to-bottom-on-output <RET>

   Then follow the customize to permanently change it.


   Please verify that emacs is actually seeing the .emacs file that you copied.

   Start up of emacs on a new PC is always a nuisance because the assumptions

   HOME directory are not always correct.


   C-x C-f ~/.emacs <RET>


   If you are lucky you will see the file you copied.  If not, copy it to this
   buffer and save it.
