"install-keymap foo", where foo is a valid keymap, will set the default
keymap on the console to foo. "loadkeys foo" will change the currently
used keymap to foo, but will not change the default. Keymaps are found
in /usr/share/keymaps, try with loadkeys the layouts that look like they
may be the one you want (perhaps mac-uk).
