How do I change to Danish keyboard-layout


I have installed CDlinux on usb, and it's working smoothly...

However I can't seem to change from English keyboard layout to Danish---(I have the choice between English and other-English/European)

I've tried the loadkeys command but it bashes it.

I have tried gaining access to etc/X11/xorg.conf, but I don't have write access, even as root!

xmodmap command, gives this message: unable to open display

Any suggestions/advice would be appreciated....
