I tried some of the combinations. I have to keep the sparc server up for mail purposes but I can bring it down soon and try the debian sarge install again.
I remember once I chose a British / UK keyboard layout instead of American English. This allowed me more flexibility than I had with the American English layout but I still ended up with the keyboard in non-working state after making a few more choices. I'll try the combinations and report the results when I bring the server down.
