Question How do I disable certain keyboard keys?

I am setting up internet kiosks, and I would like to disable all keyboard keys other than the basic QWERTY ones to keep things simple. This is going to be used by hobos and the like.

How do I do this in linux?

I would think you can use keymap to remap all the keys you don't need to something useless.
