Isn't the keymaps on the base disk(s)?  That could be a "fair"
compromise.  Having the boot/root configuration makes having
the multiple kernel images a little harder to do.  Unless
you use an fs and lilo and make sure the kernel will pause
for booting a separate root image.  [And you will have 4 disks
to worry about if done that way.  boot/root/2 bases]
