How To Remap a Keyboard to UK, French, Etc.?
For recent kernels, get /pub/Linux/system/Keyboards/kbd-0.90.tar.gz
from ftp://metalab.unc.edu/. Make sure you get the appropriate
version; you have to use the right keyboard mapping package for your
kernel version. For older kernels you have to edit the top-level
kernel Makefile, in /usr/src/linux/. You may find more helpful
information in The Linux Keyboard and Console HOWTO, by Andries
Brouwer, at ftp://metalab.unc.edu/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/.
