Since I don't think the AS/400 has an Alt-F1 key, I would guess you're referring
to pressing Alt-F1 from Client Access.  Some configurations send the help key
when Alt-F1 is pressed.  man tn5250 says the help key is M-h (or meta-h) but I
never figured out what my meta key was so I made Escape my help key by changing
my XTerm file:

<Key>Escape: string("\033\110") \n\
