This is not an FAQ question as far as Iam aware. I have the Same problem
with my UK Rev B iMac . I cannot get the '\' in OF ( 3.0f2 OF ). The low
level keyboard mapping also seems different such that the menu_ofboot.b (
renamed to ofboot.b due to known issues ) script does not work for me. It
been driving me crazy! Has anyone got any ideas on how to resolve this ??
