Help with may non-us keyboard (es)

I am working from windows XP with a spanish keyboard. My keyboard 
doesn't work with x apps (well, "space bar" and "return" works but 
nothing else ... ). I've tried to add the "-xkblayout *es*" option when 
executing xwin in the startwin.bat, but nothing changes.

Only if I use "-xkblayout *us*" works (well, I can write but guessing 
where the characters must be in a US keyboard that I don't have ...)

This is part of my xwin.log:

XFree86-Bigfont extension local-client optimization disabled due to lack 
of shared memory support in the kernel
(--) Setting autorepeat to delay=500, rate=31
(--) winConfigKeyboard - Layout: "0000040A" (0000040a)
(--) Using preset keyboard for "Spanish (Spain, Traditional Sort)" 
(40a), type "4"
(++) XKB: layout: "es"
(--) 3 mouse buttons found
Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/, removing 
from list!
winInitMultiWindowWM - pthread_mutex_lock () returned.
winProcEstablishConnection - Hello

Thanks in advance!
