Hi Mark,
Meta is just a label used to identify a key you have configured.

To configure a "meta" key go to "start > Configure Desktop > Input
Devices > Keyboard > Advanced > click on Alt-Win key behavior > choose
the meta key choice you prefer in that list.

Let us know if you have any problem with that.  (I have KDE version
4.10 but prior versions had similar settings)
