scroll lock for each user.


Hello,
I bought a new keyboard with LED-light.
I found on this forum the way to switch it on, by the changes "add mod3 = scroll lock" made in Xmodmap in /etc/X11.
Each time i start up the PC, i have to made the same editing of Xmodmap.
Is it possible to arrange it, so it will works for each user all the times the PC starts, maybe for using another directory? If so please give me the directory and the way how to do. (Understandeble for a newbe.) or maybe another way as a batch-file?
Thanks,

Here is a HOWTO with instructions. Scroll down to "Using a global Xmodmap file".
