Want to modify X keymap

When I switched to Kernel, 2.6.1 for some reason the backslash on my keyboard would not work, both in the console and in X. So I edited keymap and added a new key to it, to solve the console backslash problem.
But I don't know how to modify the keymap for X. Someone told me about the command setxkbmap in usr/X11R6/bin/, so I read the manpage, executed ./setxkbmap and still no change... I want to know where I can add/remove keys from my X key map.
