Here is what I get when I run xev and then I click the "windows" key:

KeyRelease event, serial 27, synthetic NO, window 0x2200001,
    root 0x37, subw 0x0, time 2365491217, (185,316), root:(189,361),
    state 0x40, keycode 115 (keysym 0xffeb, Super_L), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 characters:  ""

I tried doing this to get the map to work, but you see I get an error:

[root at toybox bpotts]# xmodmap keycode 115=F29
xmodmap:  unable to open file 'keycode' for reading
xmodmap:  unable to open file '115=F29' for reading
xmodmap:  2 errors encountered, aborting.

Am I doing this wrong?  I read the instructions a few times thinking I was 
missing something, but I'm seeming to have trouble with this.....

Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
Brad Potts
