You don't say whether you're using emacs thru a terminal, thru X, or
thru Aqua.  The handling of the keyboard depends on the kind of
terminal you use, not on emacs.


However, you can configure emacs to react differently from keyboard
events.  You may use M-x normal-erase-is-backspace-mode RET to toggle
the Erase and Delete mode of the Backspace and Delete keys.

But of course it would be better to configure your terminal correctly
in the first place.
