Are you using X?  If so, is it 4.x?  If so, edit your XF86Config file.  Find
the "InputDevice" section for your keyboard.  Add this line to bind `meta'
and `alt' to the alt keys:

    Option "XkbOptions" "altwin:meta_alt"

I'm using a Happy Hacking keyboard, and I used the line:

    Option "XkbOptions" "altwin:meta_win"

to bind `meta' to my left and right diamond keys (the ones that would act
like "Windows" keys were I running a different OS.  I get both `alt' and
`meta' separately this way.
