AIIII!  I have further refined the problem.  Feel a little foolish for not including a little bit of information.  I did not even have any idea it was an issue until now!

I am running Wine 1.0/PuTTY .60 on a SuSE 10.3 AMD box -BUT- I was testing this totally through a VNC connection from a windows box!!! ARG!

I got my sorry ass out of my chair and ran putty/Wine directly on the linux box and YAY IT WORKS.

So my problem is either a CMOS setting on my computer regarding my keyboard or a VNC setting/deficiency (I think the latter).

I feel much better that I can run the latest and greatest Wine and PuTTY now.  I have several machines on the shop floor that I want to convert to linux from windows as soon as possible.  The remaining PC's will be converted as time permits.  We're talking around 70 PC's.

I am -SO- happy!  8D

Of course, I want this to work under VNC, also, but this gets me off the dime!  I will check the VNC/CMOS stuff as soon as possible and report anything needed.  I'm running tightvnc server on SuSE and realvnc 4.0 on the PC.  (I'm wondering if going to tightvnc on windows will fix things.)

When all is put to bed I will go to the appDB and post all of my tricks to help out the next person in line.

Thanks for the help so far.  Sorry, looki, I don't think my solution is going to help you unless VNC is involved.
