keyboard layout in fluxbox

I'm new to linux and I've been looking around for some good tips, and that's how I got fluxbox. There seems to be a slight problem though with my keyboard layout. It's (automatically I guess) set to US and I need it to be set to BE (Belgian)...

my X86Config says the following:

Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Keyboard"
Option "XkbModel" "pc101"
Option "XkbLayout" "be"
Driver "keyboard"

If you have any idea how to possibly fix this, I'd appreciate it if you would post them here!

Is is set to "be" in your

As far as I know, fluxbox does not effect the keyboard layout.

I first twiddeld with "setxkbmap be" once I was in flux, but after some searching I found that setting in XF86Config
