Major oops here... wrong codes. Here are the correct ones:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]
"Scancode Map"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,02,00,00,5b,e0,00,3a,00,00,00,00,00

    Nelson> Caps Lock.

    Nelson> 2. Reboot (the changes on this registry key only take
    Nelson>    effect on boot)

    Nelson> 3. Change your .xinitrc to setup Hyper:

    Nelson> xmodmap -e "keycode 104 = Hyper_R" 
    Nelson> xmodmap -e "add mod3 = Hyper_R" 
    Nelson> exec xemacs-21.4.15 -f xwem-init

    Nelson> Hope this helps someone.
