Only alphabetic ASCII characters (n tilde included) work fine.
Accented characters don't work at all. Special characters such as
!"·$%&/()=?, and so on, are completely messed.
The problem resides on a wrong selection of the keyboard map.
kbd-chooser selects 'mac-usb-es', no other options are given here
for Spanish users.
If 'mac-usb-es' is selected by reconfiguring console-common
it results _exactly the same_ messy keyboard. But the correct
selection in the console-common menu for the ADB built-in
keyboard of this PowerBook is:
However the latter option is not available in installer menu.
