Inserting a special character with the keyboard #2

Hi! That's pretty much the same question I asked quite a time ago, but nobody could answer my question, so I try another time.

With Windows, you can press Alt + <Number> and you get the according character of the ASCII code. This doesn't work with my SuSE 9.3, unfortunately. Is there a way to easily insert specific characters like »guillemets«?
