My concern with "Select a keyboard layout" is that it is wrong for
console-setup in expert mode which can also configure the font.
"Configure the keyboard" is vaguer and while it doesn't strictly
encompass the console font it seems less likely that people will object
to it. I deliberately avoided "console" because that's more technical
