Win95 keys under Xfree86

I have a laptop with Win95 keyboard. It has 3 extra keys (two 'Win95' keys and one 'Properties' key) How do I set up my .Xmodmap to make Xfree86 recognize them.  They generate keycodes 115, 116, and 117 (xev reports that).  I tried adding
keycode 115 = Win_L
keycode 116 = Win_R
keycode 117 = Prop_R

to my .Xmodmap, but xmodmap complains about unknown keynames.  I also tried assigning them to F13, F14 and F15 (my keyboard only has 12 funtion keys, so there should be no confilict), but thet skrewed up my keyboard and I had to reboot.

What do I do?

I'm running on 2.0.27 kernel and Xfree86 3.2A

Try assigning the keys to other values, such as F10, F11, and F12...  As duplicate keys...
