Keyboard + Terminal settings

	Hi All !

	I have been trying to make my TTY work with accented characters.
So far, I have loaded a keymap that is essentialy us.map modified with
dead_letters where the accents are supposed to be. (I have compared to
pt.map -> portuguese map and things look more or less the same, though my
keyboard layout is the usual international one, and so, may accents are
generated a bit different)

	I have also loaded a mapscrn trivial, lat16u.psf fonts, sent the
escape character "\\033(k" (or similar... :) ) to the TTY's on startup
nothing happened up to now :(

	Any help is welcome !
