This will only apply to the current buffer in which it is executed,
which is typically the *scratch* buffer.  You probably want to either
put it on a hook or use (setq-default indent-tabs-mode nil) such that
it applies to every buffer.
Also I recommend staying away from (setq tab-width N) because it
probably doesn't do what you think it does.
