This is a pretty common problem.  It came up just a couple of
weeks ago. You need to fix the keyboard mapping in your XF86Config
(or  XF86Config-4) file.  The xkeycaps program can be helpful in
figuring out the problem. You can try the lines below that came
up a couple of weeks ago since it sounds like you have a similar
keyboard type.
