Create new SendKey in SLES 11


I have SUSE Linux enterprise Server 11 (SLES 11) installed and I am trying to run a very very locked down version of Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition as a XEN virtual server. Windows is installed from a Ghost image and it has autologon enabled with nothing much else enabled on the desktop. The statement "nothing much else available" is rather an understatement by a lot. In order to get Administrator access I have to press (send) SHIFT key (standard procedure in Windows standalone server) to the virtual server after I send the CTRL+ALT+DEL key to log off the autologon user.

1. Virtual server does not accept SHIFT key from the keyboard (I am working from the console and not logged in remotely)
2. I am unable to resize the window inside the virtual server console to see the start button

I am looking for a way to send shift key hold down until the logoff and login process completes.

I have tried to create xmodmap file with the shift key but that has not helped

Any help will be appreciated very much.
