Default ... best utility to remap a keyboard?

I purchased one of the tiny "netbooks", and I am not accustomed to the physical location of a few keys on the keyboard.
Looking for a good/safe utility to help remap a few keys on the keyboard. Thanks

I've used KeyTweak (http://webpages.charter.net/krumsick/) under XP, Vista 32 and 64 bit, and Windows 7 64 bit. The program assumes you have a standard Windows keyboard but works quite happily with non-standard keyboards, such as my vintage US IBM PS/2 model, where, for example I've remapped right-alt to be the Windows key.

You'll probably have to play around with it a bit to get exactly what you want, but I've never known it to cause any sort of hang or crash I'd be interested to know how you get on.

I use Sharpkeys as it doesn't rely on a standard keyboard and is portable:

Yeah, works fine under Vista 64 / Window 7 x64, but doesn't show you a keyboard layout, which, even if it isn't the exact layout you have, can be useful. BTW, KeyTweak is portable as well.

Still, pretty good, added it to my collection

Thank you, I'll take a look at both of them.
