Keyboard Layout

I have a ThinkPad T60 and not sure what keyboard layout, but it does have 89 keys, US.

I used to have a Windows key (mod4) assigned to :MaximizeWindow action in ~/.fluxbox/keys, but something happened recently (maybe after upgrading to Slackware 12.0) and the key doesn't work anymore.

The fluxbox log says the following when I press the key:

Keys: Invalid key/modifier on line 24): Super_L :MaximizeWindow
The Super_L is the value the key used to have. Now when I run xev and press the key, I get the following:

KeyRelease event, serial 32, synthetic NO, window 0x1400001,
    root 0x69, subw 0x0, time 3079700793, (174,-7), root:(207,41),
    state 0x0, keycode 115 (keysym 0x0, NoSymbol), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes: 
    XFilterEvent returns: False
Instead of NoSymbol, it used to say Super_L.

I'm not sure exactly what keyboard layout I need, maybe I have the wrong one in xorg.conf and that's why it's not working, but here is the InputDevice section for Keyboard0:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "kbd"
        Option       "XkbModel"  "pc89"
        Option       "XkbLayout"  "us"
I tried changing pc89 to pc101 or pc105, but no luck. Also, when I run xorgsetup and it gets to the keyboard layout, it says I have none, but I used to have a whole list to choose from.
