is what I use in /etc/rc.conf
Nb. All of the suggestions so far in this thread only deal with the
keyboard map on the console. If you're using X, that has a completely
separate keyboard configuration. From /etc/X11/XF86Config:
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "gb"
And there are a whole series of applications to do things with X
keyboards, whose names all start with 'xkb' -- probably the most
amusing is 'xkbprint' which will give you a neat postscript file
showing all of the symbols attached to each key according to what
modifier (shift, alt, ctrl, ...) keys you use.
