New to debain


I just installed debian after having a bad experience with Mandrake 8.1. I've 
always used Redhat or Mandrake before this and never Debian so I've got a 
couple of problems that I haven't been able to find the answer to.

I started with Debian 2.2r2 and I've upgrade to sid.

How do I change the keymap for the console (permanently) ? Should I edit 
/etc/init.d/keymap.sh directly ? I have to do 'loadkeys uk' after every boot.

The modules for my sound card and USB ADSL modem don't load automatically on 
boot I've tried editing /etc/modutils/actions and running update-modules but 
without any success (not sure of the syntax). The soundcard is a SoundBlaster 
Value (emk10k1) and its a Speedtouch Modem. They both work fine once I run 
modprobe for each one but I'd prefer not to have to do it everytime I boot.

I would like thank everyone involved in Debian for a stunning distribution 
and I don't know why I didn't change sooner. 

Thanks for any help.
