My main purpose is creating Linux with full Japanese Environment supported,
please take a look for Vine Linux
http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=vine
and for now I use
-----------
cat > /etc/sysconfig/console << "EOF"
# Begin /etc/sysconfig/console

KEYMAP="jp106"

# End /etc/sysconfig/console
EOF
-----------
just to continue for next chapters. I'm gonna look Vine Linux as reference.
Thank you for your kind words and support Mr. Ken
