Taming a weird keyboard

I have a laptop with japanese keyboard, I want to bind the special japanese keys to other european keys so I will have access to "larger than" "smaller than" ... etc.

How do I do this ??? (suse 10)

In X, xmodmap. On the console, loadkeys.

Use xev to see the keycodes, and assign them to whatever keysym you want (see xmodmap man page for the syntax).

Put it all in ~/.xmodmap and put 'xmodmap ~/.xmodmap' in your ~/.xsession

Then again, Suse might have some flasy utility or frontend to xmodmap.
