keyboard question


Hi
I was reading a portuguese slackware how to and i couldn`t find
/etc/rc.d/rc.keyboard on my slack, i should create one in order to insert script , if yes , where do i it put along the existent script ? i still havent` got my keyboard properly set but i hope this time hope it will

1-adding to /etc/rc.d/rc.S-------------------------------------------------------

#loads a character font if there is a rc.font script.
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.font ]; then
/etc/rc.d/rc.font start
fi

# loads a keyboard map if there is a rc.keyboard.
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.keyboard ]; then
/etc/rc.d/rc.keyboard start
fi
2- change /etc/rc.d/rc.keyboard------------------------------------------------

#!/bin/sh
#
# /etc/rc.d/rc.keyboard
#
# Seleciona um dos mapas de teclado disponíveis no diretório
# /usr/lib/kbd/keytables
#
loadkeys abnt2
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
i wanted to know also if this enables this type of keyboard (ABNT2) to all programs ? (console,konqueror,mozilla,etc...) thanks a lot

it looks like i`m talking alone here ,ehehe . but i really have this problem which i can`t fix and it`s embarrassing for me to tell people that sometimes use my computer that i don`t have a proper portuguese keyboard and for me too , of course.
I changed /etc/rc.d/rc.S and added the scripts on /etc/rc.d/rc.keyboard like i said before but nothing happend.

they say that mapscrn or showfont can be used but i`m afraid of messing around and screw things up , also they say that if unicode mapping is enabled the changes above won`t be effective. help please.
