Control Panel and use whatever was set in COntrol pabel?

Today I finished my first round of key mappings for the Windows virtual
codes to the codes that X uses.  These new key mappings are needed to
replace the DirectInput keyboard code with standard keyboard input code.
have built and tested the key mappings, and I've got everything working
a US keyboard) except the NumLock key.

The display code hasn't moved much; I'm still at the point where I
the overlay for the X window screen within a Windows window, but I have
do a little more math on positioning the window so that video card
and size restrictions for overlays are met.

I have not started on replacing the DirectInput mouse code with standard
mouse input functions.  I'm not sure if this would be worth it for an
test release on Win9X, as I haven't really seen anyone reporting
with DirectInput acquiring the mouse (though lots of people have had
problems acquiring the keyboard).
