(Nice reply and instructions snipped.)

Thanks for that information. I finally figured out on my own though,
All I had to do was read /etc/sysconfig/keyboard and add "shiftctrl" to
COMPOSETABLE="clear shiftctrl latin1.add"

That way I get the same compose key (<right-shift>+<right-control>)
for xterms or console.

I'm saving your method for future reference though. :-)
