keyboard in Mandrake/Mandriva 2006

Hi, I'm using a PaceBlade 600Mhz with Trans Meta processor
IR-keyboard hardwired as PS2, and USBmouse (PS2) plus a firewire CD.

After some installations i've gotten the OS to give me keyboard settings that worked in the GUI (icewm fluxbox), but i can't go out from the GUI without losing my keyboard??? and when i logout from the GUI and then try to login via the graphical login the same happens.

Some of my keys are in the right positions, other change into numerical tangents, as i found out which ones that work, and use them, i can log in, but after 're-logging' the keyboard will be corrupted in the GUI to.
Is there any one who can give me an idea of what to do about it.

It doesn't seems to have anything to do with my Swedish keyboard_mapping, i've tried with default key mapping (English/reinstall) with the same result. My keyboard works in W_XP and i've tried it with live linux cd:s which also works ?
