I have a normal QWERTY keyboard on my EeePC 900 netbook (I'm just typing
into it) and with X11 I use the following script on desktop

# para el español:
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x73 =  Mode_switch"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x39 =  n N ntilde Ntilde"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x1a =  e E eacute Eacute"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x26 =  a A aacute Aacute"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x1f =  i I iacute Iacute"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x1e =  u U uacute Uacute"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x20 =  o O oacute Oacute"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x0a =  1 exclam exclamdown onesuperior"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x3d = slash question questiondown ssharp"
xmodmap -e "keycode 59 = comma less guillemotleft"
xmodmap -e "keycode 60 = period greater guillemotright"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x35 = x X adiaeresis Adiaeresis"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x36 = c C odiaeresis Odiaeresis"
xmodmap -e "keycode 0x37 = v V udiaeresis Udiaeresis"

Using this the so called Windows-key get a nice usage: Winkey+n gives ñ
and so on: áéíóúñ...
