Hello all. I can't figure out what file to change so that I get uk keymap from boot on my hd install. At the moment I'm ctrl-alt-backspacing after boot, to kill the x-client, then running kbdconfig, selecting uk, then startx, which works fine, but I know there's got to be an easier way........
Ideas please?

Edit /etc/init.d/ where you comment out everything and then add '/bin/loadkeys uk'.

Then create symbolic links:
ln -s /etc/init.d/keymap /etc/rc5.d/S30keymap
ln -s /etc/init.d/keymap /etc/rc3.d/S30keymap

I had a similar problem as well, my solution which works, is to find the right rc*.d directories and add the line "loadkeys uk" into the configuration files and now I get the UK keymap from boot up.

Hope this helps
