OK, so it loads the `wrong' keymap after boot up.

The input subsystem was changed between 2.4 and 2.6. The old Amiga keymaps are
no longer compatible.

There's never a reason to reinstall Debian ;-)

The `correct' fix is to disable installing the new keymap, but I don't know
where that's configured.
The quick fix is to find the loadkeys command in /etc/init.d and disable it.

Just install modutils, and 2.6 should be fine.
