The key between the ctrl and alt on the left side, and on the right next to the alt.
Don't know how to do it in suse but in mandrake it works, so there probably is a way.

yes, there is probably a way, but its true for mandrake only, you can ask a mandrake user. for the time being, you can assign Launch Pop-up menu by assigning new keys (say winkey+A), winkey don't work alone. go to control center and in the personal settings option (i think) you will find Keyboard Shortcuts

You can also bind the windows key (or any other key, for that matter) to any other key, F13 for example, and then bind F13 to open a Terminal window or somesuch. Don't know how to open the K menu though
