Option "XkbLayout" "fr"
Then restart X.
Yes, this would be a quick way to solve the issue as long as one already knows that the right keyboard model to use in this case is "pc105", and the right layout "la"
BTW, there is a workaround during installation. Under Hardware Configuration, Graphics Cards... once Sax2 is launched, one of the menu options allows one to select the appropiate keyboard layout. Selecting "latin america" does work now!
This is not good. Especially for newbies who will not be exploring expert configuration options during installation!
Later, a postinstallation solution would be to lauch Sax2 while running X, and make the changes from there.
Hope it helps future users with a "latin america" keyboard layout...
Hope Novell fixes this little detail in SuSE 9.3... someone please let them know about it.
