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.

I did compile LFS 6.6 fine but now when i boot into the os I have problems with keyboard some of the keys has been swapped or they don't print what they are meant for example . doesn't type . it type something else and similary many more but rest workfine for alphabeticalkeys..
I doubt that the content of /etc/sysconfig/console is correct for you (it looks like you just copied the last example from the LFS page). The above tells me that you want a german keyboard, use UTF-8, a fancy font and the euro2 correction (the KEYMAP_CORRECTIONS is hardly ever used....).
Did you have this console set-up when you posted your initial (post #1) question? If so, you might consider removing it completely. As mentioned in the first paragraph of that chapter, the console file might not be needed at all.
