I wrote a startup script that does a whole heap of "setkeycodes" commands, but I've found that the version of "setkeycodes" in the console-tools package does not work with kernel version 2.2+. The one with the "kbd" package works fine, but "kbd" seems to be a somewhat deprecated package.
There is a known bug of setkeycodes in console-tools ignoring the last
pair of args. If it is not fixed in your version of the package (hm,
did I already upload a fixed one ?), just adding 2 dummy parameters at
the end of the command-line should do the trick.
