    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:
    http://www3.sympatico.ca/rhwatson/dos7/x-country.html
    you may want to put 033,850 it says this
    also sets the character set.

    Best of luck,
    John
