change key mapping for Option and Command on Mac OS 9.x - Mac Programming

Hi, I am doggedly trying to use a PC keyboard on my G4 here at work. :) It's running OS 9.0.4. I've found articles explaining how to use Resedit to change the key mappings, and I can successfully change the mappings of most keys, but not the Option and Command keys.

    Default change key mapping for Option and Command on Mac OS 9.x

    Hi,

    I am doggedly trying to use a PC keyboard on my G4 here at work. :)
    It's running OS 9.0.4.

    I've found articles explaining how to use Resedit to change the key
    mappings, and I can successfully change the mappings of most keys, but
    not the Option and Command keys.

    I am stuck at the point where I am to drag the mapped character from
    the character table to the key on the keyboard that I want it mapped
    to. For one, the mapped character for the Command or Option key is not
    in the upper left table, it's in the upper right. And secondly, there
    will be no dragging of those characters, whereas other characters can
    be dragged down to the keyboard layout.

    If I don't even have to use Resedit, then please educate me. I did
    find a post that referred to being able to do exactly what I'm wanting
    to do on OS 9.x with some control panel, but I've looked through all
    the control panels that seem remotely appropriate and haven't found
    what I need.

    Thanks so much in advance for any and all help.

    IIRC, there is share/freeware to help with exactly this situation.
