Thanks for the prod in the right direction!  I googled distel and I found:

http://parijatmishra.wordpress.com/2008/08/15/up-and-running-with-emacs-erlang-and-distel/

They mentioned going in to erlang mode and doing some things there and I
have erlang mode installed so I fired up emacs and type in m-x erlange-mode
and then pressed c-c c-z and it started an erlang shell.  I then pressed
ctrl-g and it put a ^G on the line, but this time when I pressed enter it
brought up the User switch command......

Thanks,

wes
