Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hmm, wonder why that is? I picked a UK keyboard layout, maybe that's it?
I think you can manually mess with X's keybindings, but I dunno about telling KDE what to do. Probably been addressed on their site or other forums already by now. Tried google?
I tried going to look & feel > Keyboard bindings as the KDE FAQ recommended.
There you can select a function and associate a key with it, but when I press the start button it displays meta+ and waits for the next key depression, like it wants a 2 key assosiation (e.g start-a rather than just start).
you can also access it by right clicking on the kicker and selecting menu editor. Then it will list all of your apps and you can click on one and then there will be a shortcut key tab near the bottom right that will say "none" in it. To change that, you just click on "none" and then use whatever key combination you want. As far as I know it has to be a combination. So if you can't use "start", try "start-K".
I know that isn't as convenient, but it is better than nothing.
there is, if you are using a logitech keyboard there is an itouch plugin for xmms. It really kicks ass. I have mine set up so that the go button launches up a terminal and home runs mozilla, etc...
Search for it. I think it is also on freshrpms.net.
I'm sorry I did have a look around but can not find the command to get the Kdemenu popping up. If i would have found it we could have been able to bind it to the key for sure. ( the only trick you can do is to assing it to the left mouse button )
Do both "windows-keys" not work ? On my keyboard ( Logitech ) the left one does and the right one does not.
