If you mean the type of the cursor--box or bar--it is set in the frame 
parameters.  This is documented in the ELisp reference.

Just to make the opinions more balanced, I don't agree with Bill.  I'm 
working with blinking cursor most of the time (because the blinking 
cannot be turned off on the MS-DOS terminal), and I can see no 
abomination in that feature.

I think many (most?) Unix tty's also blink their cursor by default.  At 
least the one where I'm typing this does.
