The Caps Lock Key.

O.k. so this is shaping up to be really really boring, but if you want to make the caps lock key do something useful (I like to turn it into a control key) you can use this:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard1"
Driver "keyboard"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "gb"
Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"

in your XF86config file. Of course if you are not using the X Windowing System then all that might be a bit greek to you. There is also a program for fiddling with registry settings on Windows XP which seems to do the trick but I forget the name.
