I do have a MS Natural kbd.  Here is the section from my XF86Config:

Section "Keyboard"
   Protocol        "Standard"
   XkbRules        "xfree86"
   XkbModel        "microsoft"
   XkbLayout       "us"
   XkbOptions      "ctrl:nocaps"

IIRC, one of the options in XF86Setup on the keyboard tab was
"Microsoft Natural". ;)

To get to any of 6 virtual terminal consoles, use Ctrl-Alt-F[1-6] when
in X; Alt-7 goes back to X (under normal circumstances).
