the doc link at ccrma must be out of date -- you seem to be following old (out-of-date) directions. 

Assuming you have the latest cm tarball (cm-2.4.2.tar.gz)
AND you have a properly installed cmucl command on your $path, do this:

    $ tar -zxf cm-2.4.2.tar.gz
    $ cd cm-2.4.2
    $ bin/cm.sh

>Hi.  I'm trying to get going on cm/clm.  I have the latest via apt from the repository.  I would like to run them using cmucl via xemacs on FC1.  I am following the info on the Installing CM page on the CCRMA site.  It says to load lisp, then load clm or cmn first.  So I do this.  Then load cm.lisp.  All okay.  Then it says to (push ':no-scheme *features*).  I don't really know much about this, but I do it.  Then it says to quit and re-load cm.  
>Should I reload clm, and then cm again?  Anyway, in either case, at the end of the reload there is no message about how to save the image.  Should this happen automatically?  In any case there is no xcm script generated anywhere and cm.sh opens a lisp session, but doesn't seem to actually load cm into it.  The output of cm.sh looks like:
>[root@localhost bin]# ./cm.sh
>End-of-File on #<String-Input Stream>
>   [Condition of type END-OF-FILE]
>  0: [ABORT] Skip remaining initializations.
