My ThinkPad x43 has no Super key. Most of the keyboard shortcuts in 11.04 use this button:
What are Unity's keyboard and mouse shortcuts?
What to do with Unity now? Is there a way to map the Fn button to super or something like this?

If you don't mind losing your left Alt key, you can swap it with the Win key.
Keyboard control panel, go to the
Layout tab and select
Options.... Expand the
Alt/Win key behaviour section, and select
Left Alt is swapped with Left Win.
Using the keyboard layout properties I set Caps Lock as another Super key and then it works the same way as a Windows key it seems. At least it opens the Dash.
You can remap almost anything to Super. Assuming the below is really an x43 keyboard (the internet swears it is), I'd go for the page left/page right keys on either side of the up-arrow on the bottom right. You're likely to regret remapping Fn.
You probably need to use
xmodmap. This is a command line operation.
