Hello guys,

I'd posted this issue on but figured I'd get my
answer quicker here:

Having set up LFS for servers a few times before, I am now trying to
build a viable, fully functional desktop OS with it on my new laptop.

First hurdle (never had to bother about it on servers) - how to

Is keymap correct and what about font?

Thanks in advance - your help will be very much appreciates.
