xterm question

it's a stupid little question really but I have an xterm filled with a 
log file (telnetted into another machine) which is scrolled off the 
screen. How do I select all the text in one go? I only seem to be able 
to select the visible screenful, copy, paste into text file, scroll up, 
select the next screenful etc. I want the screen to scroll when the 
mouse pointer hits the top or bottom of the window.

The best I've done so far is script - it works but it's messy.
