mapping delete key

A Linux newbie working on moving a small company from SCO to Linux.

In SCO Unix the keyboard "Delete" key is mapped to CONTOL-C.

They have many applications where the users are used to hitting the Delete key rather than CTRL-C. Any way to map the Delete key on the keyboard to send a "CTRL-C" ?

I'm using RedHat 9 Linux

THanks, Steve
