How do you type s- on a MacOSX keyboard?

I use a DasKeyboard 3 keyboard, with "System
Preferences"/"Keyboard"/"Modifier Keys…" set to

    Caps Lock ->  Control
    Control   -> Control
    Option    -> Command
    Command   -> Option

(there's no Hyper or super choice here);

and consequently,  I get the following map to emacs
( modifiers:

    C-                      RET
    S-                      S-
    C- A- M- SPC M-a A- C-p C-

(notice the C-p bound to the second form the right bottom key, which I
cannot change to anything more useful).
