First, you should check what keycode the key you want to disable
produces. You can check this by using X11/xev and pressing the key.

On my English PC keyboard, the left Windows key produces keycode 115.

I can disable it by putting the following line in ~/.xinitrc since I
use startx(1):

xmodmap -e "keycode 115="

If you use xdm(1) or similar display manager, then you want to put
that line in ~/.xsession

Don't worry about having an xmodmaprc.

You'll obviously need to restart X for the change to take effect. Or
just run it from a prompt for it to have an immediate effect.
