Well, this is not the standard setting - so you or your Sysadmin must
have done this.  C-g normally does nothing except canceling whatever
you are doing.  If you are doing nothing, it just beeps, as Craig

XEmacs 21.1 has goto-line standard on M-g
Emacs 20.6 has no standard binding to goto-line.  To get it on M-g
like in XEmacs, put this into .emacs.

(define-key global-map "\M-g" 'goto-line)

Hope this helps
