_Anything_ is possible in Emacs.  Almost.  :-)

If you're happy about tabs being used in any mode, put the following in
your emacs:

(setq indent-tabs-mode t)

.  If you just want it in C Mode, use the C Mode hook:

(defun mf-enable-indent-tabs ()
  (setq indent-tabs-mode t))
(add-hook 'c-mode-hook 'mf-enable-indent-tabs)

.  All the best!
