Listing everything in ls /usr/share/keymaps/i386/ may be a start. The list is a bit different, however, when you think of the graphical mode.

i m using fedora 7. i know there is a graphical interface for this. But i would change the keyboard layout by using
Code:
setxkbmap
. so i need to know the internal name of keyboard layouts, like "us" for en-us or "fr" for french.

You can see the available layouts running:
Code:
ls -l /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/pc
