Under X 3, in various configurators, it should be sufficient to tell it 
you have the "104 key keyboard" or depending on the tool, "Microsft Natural"

That declares 3 extra keys, rt-win, lt-win, and macro. (I think that both
win keys use the code AltGr to indicate which shifter bit they use. If
I'm mixing my console and Xwin logic sorry, it's been awhile since I needed
to worry about this)

If your machine doesn't have all 3 of the extras it's no harm.
