Setkeycodes error, accidentally overwrote 'up'

How can I reverse this? I was using setkeycodes to get some extra buttons on my keyboard working, and accidentally mistyped a number and now I can't use my up arrow button.
I'm using gnome with Slackware 12.

restart the comp ... if you had asked set key code to run with xmodmap then in the default run level nothing should be the problem.

worst comes to worst , restart and add single in the lilo screen and boot into single user mode and delete whatever changes you made in whichever file.
