Put this in your .Xdefaults (and do xrdb -merge .Xdefaults if needed):

rxvt.scrollstyle: xterm

Some other settings I use:

rxvt.background: Black
rxvt.foreground: White
rxvt.saveLines: 2000
rxvt.keysym.0xFFFF: \177
rxvt.cutchars: `"'%&()*,;<>@[]{|}
rxvt.print-pipe: "cat >$HOME/rxvt.print"
rxvt.termName: xterm

rxvt.mouseWheelScrollPage: true
rxvt.scrollTtyOutput: false
rxvt.scrollTtyKeypress: true
rxvt.scrollWithBuffer: true
rxvt.scrollstyle: xterm

rxvt.font: -*-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-*-*-*-120-*-*-*-*-iso8859-*

rxvt is still the best!

Personally, I loathe xdefaults. Thanks to all the application-specific weirdness, they have cost me far more time than they have ever saved me. I use rxvt too, but I just have my launch button launch this command:

/usr/bin/rxvt -rv -sr -font 1 -vb -si -sk -sl 1000

This, plus changing the color for directories from dark blue to bright yellow, leads to terminal bliss. (to change directory colors, use DIR 01;33, see dircolors(1) for how)
