To change the keyboard type only until the next system reboot, execute the
following commands as root:

  # /sbin/itemap -i -L

To persist the new keyboard type setting across system reboots, execute the
following commands as root:

  # rm /etc/kbdlang
  # /sbin/itemap -i -L -w /etc/kbdlang

In either case, you will be prompted for the keyboard type, as you were
during the OS installation.
