Broken key - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

My arrow-down key is broken. I was thinking of letting Linux Redhat 8.0 act as arrow-down key was pressed when I pressed another key, e.g PageDown. Is this possible? And if, how? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Anders...

    My arrow-down key is broken. I was thinking of letting Linux Redhat 8.0
    act as arrow-down key was pressed when I pressed another key, e.g
    PageDown.

    Is this possible? And if, how?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    again.
