[Om2008.9] Spanish keyboard?

On my normal FreeBSD / KDE based laptops I have instructed the X server
with a small script:

$ cat xmod.sh
# $Id: xmod.sh,v 1.1 2008/08/25 10:04:41 guru Exp $
# para español:
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x73 =  Mode_switch"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x39 =  n N ntilde Ntilde"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x1a =  e E eacute Eacute"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x26 =  a A aacute Aacute"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x1f =  i I iacute Iacute"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x1e =  u U uacute Uacute"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x20 =  o O oacute Oacute"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x14 =  questiondown question backslash ssharp"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x0a =  1 exclam exclamdown onesuperior"
xmodmap -e "keycode 94 = less greater guillemotleft guillemotright bar brokenbar"

to enhance a bit the keyboard; you fire it up when X11 is up and it
changes the keyboard for all clients; this change makes the so called Windows-key
(for the very 1st time) something useful: pressing and holding it down
it gives for example for the key 'n' the Spanish key 'ñ' (i.e. a 'n' with that
small snake line above);

I'd like to have this as well with the Ilume keyboard in my FR; any idea
how to do that?
