I think xterm supports both a black background and scrollbar.  I haven't 
used it in a long time but I know I've had both (maybe this wasn't xterm, 
but it was another standard linux X terminal).

Check the man page for xterm.  There should be a command line option 
listed to set the background and text color (that's how I changed mine).  
Dunno about the scrollbar, since I didn't have to change anything to get one.
