Swap Command and Alt keys on USB keyboard
Authored by: iandennismiller on Jan 06, '12 08:26:26PM

"There is an official and also much simpler solution: System Preferences -> Keyboad -> Modifier Keys
Select the internal, and optionally also the external USB keyboard, then swap Option and Command keys"

dvo is exactly right - the best way to swap command and option is through System Preferences. This works on Lion; I can't comment on anything earlier. In my case, I wanted to keep the internal keyboard as is, but swap the keys on my windows USB keyboard. This works like a charm!
