It should be the hostname without the domain part (like "mybox".
Then in /etc/hosts you should have a line like
127.0.0.1 mybox.mynet.home mybox

fstab should be created after the base system has been created, I
believe. This is why you have tell which fs to mount where in the tree.
resolv.conf should be created if you answer the questions about
nameservers during installation.

They are started in /etc/init.d/netstd_nfs, but only if you export
some directories in /etc/exports. Otherwise they are not needed.

Don't know about these. Maybe some typo in the keymap file? Try the
xbase/xserver from slink.

Should do it. Be sure you don't use numlock, as it is another

This is most likely a result of the error you mention in 4.

Maybe because the application don't specify a icon for the menu. I
have a miniicon for gv (Apps/Viewers/GV). If you also have it, then
everything is OK. Check /usr/doc/menu for infos how to provide your
own entries for the menu, in which you can enable miniicons.
