In the GUI installer, select the following:

* 105-key international keyboard.

* se-latin1 (Or is it called Sweden?)

* None

Now i can type that Swedish characters edv etc. Everything works.

But when the installation is completed (i.e. after reboot), the keymap is
set to us. I have to start linuxconf, goto featues, and select se-latin1


I have a Microsoft 3-button-with-scroll Intellimouse.

I select it in the installer, but to have it working in X later on (gpm
works ok), I have to run mouseconfig and select it once again.

This is when using the GUI installer, not textmode.
