No, really, honestly, you don't. I use emacs, not xemacs. Here's a quote
from the emacs info page:

"On a text-only terminal, the Emacs display occupies the whole screen.
On the X Window System, Emacs creates its own X windows to use."

If you open emacs in an xterm window and don't want it to run in its own
window, you use the -nw option. I leave it to the interested reader to
figure out what 'nw' stands for.
