What operative system? – badp Nov 16 '10 at 21:58
Linux, but you answered it anyways for multiple systems. Thanks. – Mnementh Nov 16 '10 at 22:41

  • Linux and OSX: Edit ~/.slashemrc
  • Windows: Edit the slashem.cnf file in your Nethack folder.

This wiki page is an excellent guide for Nethack configuration and should work without trouble on Slash'EM. More Slash'EM specific information can be found in its man page.
