laptop keyboard not working properly

I've just bought an Airis (a Spanish computer maker) laptop, Airis Xyra is the modelname. The thing is that I can't find a suitable keyboard map for it. A Spanish map shloud do, but many keys don't work properly and it shows =o when you press o (logging as root is a mess, I have plugged a normal keyboard). Has any of you had similar problems with keyboards on laptops?

I'm running Slackware 9.0

Thanks in advance for your help
