Still X Window has pc104 and us layout. Same for Gnome.
I booted from floppies, chose finnish keyboard. Looked like choosing
country did not work, seemed it does not open a submenu. Finnish text
was strange, I think it is missing all ä-characters, that is a with
umlaut. Also most of the text was in english, but they should be
translated to finnish. After CD was used finnish got better.
If the floppies do not have room for proper translation, it is better to
make them english only. Now finnish was lousy when so many characters
were replaced with a space.
Much changes since RC1. This seems to get better each release.
