Description atan 1999-06-03 12:33:45 UTC
The loading of keyboard mapping and console font is done in
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit, _before_ partitions other than / are
mounted. As my /usr resides on a different partition, fonts
and mappings cannot be found this early.
I moved both tasks downward in the script, just after
mount -a. This did the job.

b) have put their keymaps & font data in /etc/sysconfig/console...
