I tried the netinst cd of the 6 May 2006.
a) :-)    The keymap selected with the italian language was a "qwerty"  
b) :-(((( however it did not allow to write accented letters, 
        neither at or numbersign 
Since @ is S-2 I think that the layout is the us one.

c) :-(( I've not been able to load the right keymap:/usr/share/keymap/i386/qwerty/it.kmap.gz
  both in "install" mode and in "expert mode".
  When I tried to choose the keymap the only 'option'
- well it wasn't really an option since the user was forced to accept the
  installer choice :-/
 was to *keep* the kernel keyboard.

Can a user select the keymap from a list of available layouts?
