remap keyboard windows key

Dear all,
Seeing as how the Windows key on my keyboard doesn't have much use now that i'm using linux 90% of the time (Windows is still here for dvd writing, graphics and games), i was wondering if there was some way for my to remap the key to do somethign useful.

Perhaps it might be possible to map it so that it launches the KDE menu?

Any suggestions on how to go about doing this?

Many thanks =]
(I owe most of what I know about linux to these forums, all those long distant times ago)

Mine already does this in Slackware 10.0, perhaps an upgrade is in order? If not then have a look in the KDE control center under Regional & Accessibility-->Keyboard Shortcuts.

just tried the windows key in slack 10 and it sure does pop up the menu... thanks for the tip... even the right-click-menu key works...
