multi language keyboard

I followed a google search to "" and his advise worked.
Now it *doesn't*.
I want to use the ISO Latin-1 character set. I created a file "$HOME/.Xmodmap" with one line of "keycode 115 = Multi_key". The file is still there. I found keycode 115 by trial & error because there is no "xev" in Mandrake 9.1 (as I installed it).
