Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Thanks to macondo for providing the solution. It's in post #3. Thanks to everybody else for input; note that the thread goes a bit OT after the solution.
I wish to use the dvorak keyboard layout, and I wish it to be loaded when I log in to tty1. Oh, and X doesn't work for me yet, so a console-only solution will do just fine.
I had this set the way I wanted (thanks to Debian for including Dvorak in the installer!), but somehow screwed with it when I completed base-config. I tried re-running base-config, but it didn't bring up the option screen where I screwed up. Hm. I think I'll run tasksel and dselect, just for fun
Anyways, the reason I ask for help in the distro forum is that I seached for both "keyboard layout" and "dvorak", no results that work for Woody. I googled for a similar selection of terms, also to no avail.
Also, I'm kinda' embarrased to ask such a simple question, but hey... nobody's perfect. Except August Dvorak

to Not now, John: thanks for the effort, but I guessed it wouldn't work, since /etc/rc.d/ and /etc/sysconfig/ doesn't exist. However, I already have a loadkeys file; "loadkeys dvorak" does what one would expect. The reason I posted in "Debian" was that I wanted a Debian specific (or at least Debian functional solution). Still, thank you for the effort
to Macondo: yep, it worked; dvorak is back on track (wohoo!); The installation guide seems very good, in the case the installer does what you want it to; when errors occur (my case), you're on your own though - I'll probably make a post on this too. But thanks for the link, and thanks a lot for the solution.
