OK, thanks for the clarification. Looks like this is it.

<rant> And I'm glad to begin chapter 2 of my Introduction To Linux with
something like "Well, folks, unfortunately you can't select a custom

talked about in chapter 1 has a bug in the kernel so for now the default
keyboard layout will have to be sufficient.</rant>
