openSuSE 11.2 RC1 non-U.S. keyboard problem

I am in the process of installing openSuSE 11.2 RC1 on all of my systems.  One of the first things I have found is that it still has a problem with non-U.S. keyboards.  No matter what keymap I select during installation, the installed image ends up with the U.S. definition.

You can manually change the definition by editing /etc/sysconfig/keyboard and changing the KEYTABLE value.  Look in /usr/share/kbd/keymaps/i386 to find the known maps - and don't overlook the fact that there are separate directories for qwerty and qwertz keyboard maps.  Reboot after changing.
