I think you can just open Control Center and to to
Regional&Accessibility->Keyboad Layout. In the Layout tab if you check
"Enable keyboard layouts" you can select Dvorak. It's there in my KDE 3.2,
but I bet it's there in KDE 3.1, also.

What do you want it to do? If all you want it to get the K menu, I think that
by default binds to Alt-F1. You can do into the global Shortcuts and change
Here's what I do with the Windows keys.
I have a .Xmodmap file which I runwhen I enter X with 'xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap':
! Left Start key
keycode 115 = F13
! Right Start key
keycode 116 = F14
! Right Menu key
keycode 117 = F15
I run the above command from an executable script which is in ~/.kde/Autostart
Then I use the standard keyboad shortcuts control to make those three keys do
whatever I want. My personal binding is
Left Start: raise/lower window
Right Start: maximize window
Right Menu: maximize window vertically
