you'll recall that I said (I hope) that I don't use the Live CD, so
I've no idea how to configure it.
I've no idea how to check which keyboard is selected, but the locale
is in 'printev' - often only LC_ALL is used. I used to have a
genuine US keyboard from my first PC (I think that was one of hte
reasons it was so cheap), which moved to my first LFS machine as I
upgraded, so I was semi-familiar with the layout even before I got
my G5 mac with usb.
In my experience, people occasionally key ' when they should key `,
but your problem sounds unusual. Best of luck with the reboot.
