Remapping N900 hardware keyboard: http://wiki.maemo.org/Remapping_keyboard

Furthermore for xterm-specific usage you can change your xterm
on-screen keys or your hardware keyboard mappings to include more
useful keys like those. For example in my Xterm I have:
Ctrl Esc { } < > | %

And I have remapped my hardware keyboard so that Fn-Up is PgUp,
Fn-Down is PgDown, Fn-Left is Home, Fn-Right is End. For tab in xterm
I simply press control-i.

Customize xterm key bar:

Good luck :)
