My note at beginning of : may apply:
"Before modifying your keymap you have to know that if you change your
keymap and end up with an unusable keyboard, you can remove
/etc/console/boottime.kmap.gz, and remove any configuration of kbd or
console-tools and reboot your system. It will load the kernel keymap."
