Yes, it is. By using the 'loadkeys'-program. Use it to change your
keyboard layout. Put in somewhere in your boot files, preferably in:
(as it should be executed no matter what runlevel you are using)
Either make a new file there (it will automatically be executed if it has
its executable attribute bit on), or better yet, insert the command in the
file 'boot'. It is always executed. The command should look like:
loadkeys /etc/kbd/default.map

The .map-files are keyboard layouts. You can find a lot predefined in:

but you can use any text editor (I myself prefer 'joe') to edit a file to
suit your needs... I have, I use my own keymap where the keys are where I
want them to be.

Feel free to ask if you need more help
(just don't forget 'man loadkeys')
