Wrong character when typing


I am new to linux and have just installed Redhat on my laptop Toshiba Satellite 2105CDS. When installing the program the keyboard keys were alright. But after booting the computer, whenever I type in letter like "a", a letter "ia" is entered,and when I type in "i" the combination "ai". What is wrong and how can I fix this. I tried to reinstall the same problem occured.
Thank you

If it is just those two keys, you should check that the keyboard is not broken. (How do those keys type in the installer? With live distros?)

You should be aware that redhat 9 is legacy and well depreciated.
OTOH: your laptop is pretty aged too ... so RH9 may be a good choice.
