I use "nodeadkeys" in my XF86config(-4) ever since I use X with german 
keyboards... What are these dead keys good for and where are they found/used 
anyway ? Ok, http://wauug.erols.com/~balsa/linux/deadkeys/ got some answers,
I think it would a good idea to explain in the installation manual what 
deadkeys are ?!

I think "deadkeys" should not be translated, "firewire" won't be translated as 
well ;-)

If a user selects german settings and has a a german keyboard deadkeys should 
not be selected by default. If a user selects german settings and has no 
german keyboard, he should be prompted whether she wants deadkeys.
