the default woody kernel in kernel-image-2.2.19-pmac Version: 2.2.19-3.1
which has CONFIG_MAC_ADBKEYCODES=n  therefore it boots using linux
keycodes and REQUIRES that you use linux keymaps, this kernel is used
for boot-floppies (the next build will automatically use it since its
in woody now).  i have fixed boot-floppies to no longer include nor
offer adb keymaps during the keyboard config step, it will immediatly
from boot on use linux keycodes, debootstrap will install the
console-data packages from woody which also by default configure and
use linux keymaps, not mac keymaps.  

default woody installs will be using linux keycodes very the very
first boot of the boot-floppies on, no questions asked and no option
to do otherwise.
