Getting Right Shift to Work in Olin 404.5

Some of you have probably noticed that right shift doesn't work on under GNOME on the Sun Rays in Olin 404.5. The solution is to go to System > Prefrences > Keyboard Shortcuts, scroll down to E-mail click on it and hit backspace. Or you can run this command
gconftool-2 --type string --set /apps/gnome_settings_daemon/keybindings/email disabled
I found this from the Ubuntu on Sun Ray guide. It also has instructions on how to fix the Alt keys. Another good GNOME on Sun Ray guide is This blog post by a Sun employee. I recommend turning off wallpaper
gconftool-2 --type string --set /desktop/gnome/background/picture_options none
gconftool-2 --type string --set /desktop/gnome/background/primary_color \#037AD6
gconftool-2 --type string --set /desktop/gnome/background/color_shading_type solid

and the desktop
gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop false
