Hi ckaas,

I think that is set by the config.sys.
If you type edit config.sys at the C: prompt,
it should bring up a small editor,
if you then change the country to 033,
that should give you the appropriate keyboard.
(its probably at 000)

see:

you may want to put 033,850 it says this
also sets the character set.

Best of luck,
John
