I like to use an old (well pre-WinKey) IBM keyboard. What I'd like to do is somehow map the CapsLock key so that it acts as a WinKey.

I haven't tried this, but it sounds like it will do what you want: http://caps-lock-changer.lastdownload.com/

Alternatively, you should be able to do it by editing the registry (very dangerous if you don't know what you are doing and make a mistake):

Thanks for the suggestions. I couldn't download the caps-lock-changer because the actual download page wasn't available.

But I did end up editing the registry which did work.
