There might be a way with System Preferences -> Keyboard & Mouse -> Keyboard

Or maybe using the command line defaults tool would work.  I seem to
remember using that to stop Command-Q from quitting in Safari (I'd sometimes
accidentally hit q instead of w).  I think I got that tip on macosxhints...
Yeah, here it is:

defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSUserKeyEquivalents
   '{"Quit Safari" = "@Q"; "Quit Mail" = "@Q";}'

man defaults
...if you have trouble.
