Slax 5.1.8 - How to change keyboard layout at command line

I've just ran and tested the Slax Live CD and what an excellent live distro it is ! Now by default it gets you into Run level 3 , command line. As I use an English keyboard what command should I use to map correctly. When ever I try to use the "|" charcter I get ">" etc due to incorrect country codes. Is "loadkeys" the answer ?

Thanks !

man loadkeys
I for example, use
It will load in /usr/share/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/ and change my layout to a latinamerican one.
