This may be a good time to learn about xmodmap as well as how the linux
keyboard maps work.
Of course, having the 's' key broken is a tough one...you can't type ls
or su or sudo...
Perhaps the best you can do is make a Linux on a flash drive with the
remapped table, and copy it where you need to.
Nah...best to fix the hardware.
