I couldn't find a back quote on the keyboard. So I edited both /etc/keymap.2.6 and /etc/keymap.2.4 and put "grave" in the <function>-q spot. I tried loadkeys but that didn't seem to work for me. After reboot I got a back quote when pressing <function>-q.
I am not sure which file (2.6 or 2.4) gave the proper results. I am little rushed now to test it again.
