The Czech keymap does not work as expected. It has two modes:

* By default it behaves like an ordinary English/US keymap (this
  By pressing AltGR+number from upper row you should be able to write
  some accented letters. That probably works too, but some of the
  letters are displayed as in different encoding, therefore showing
  wrong symbols. Please see http://www.debian.cz/~kurem/shots/
  d-i.png shows expected output from pressing keys 1-0, g-i.png shows
  current output from your g-i miniiso.

* By pressing Pause the keyboard should switch to the Czech layout
  where you can write accented letters directly by pressing the
  numbers without any modifier and use the dead key + letter to write
  accents that are not accessible directly under any number. The dead
  key should be "=" key (next to backspace) and Shift+"=". The first
  is used to write cute above letters [aeiyou], the other to write
  caron above letters [rtsdcn].
  In g-i I can't switch to this mode at all.
