Description of problem:
The Dvorak keyboard layout works fine in X, but not in the console (via
/sbin/init 3), and "loadkeys dvorak" always fails. I get the following error:

Loading //lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/dvorak
input in flex scanner failed

This is easily fixable by editing /etc/sysconfig/keyboard and changing KEYTABLE
to /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/dvorak/dvorak.map.gz, but it is just very annoying, and
this should not be a problem, and should be fixed. Using redhat-config-keyboard
resets KEYTABLE to dvorak and I get the problem again. 

Also, I noticed that the /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/dvorak directory contains ANSI
Dvorak and right-handed and left-handed Dvorak. Although I don't personally use
them, they could be easily added to redhat-config-keyboard and the initial
installation program. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type "loadkeys dvorak"

Actual Results:  showed this error:

Loading //lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/dvorak
input in flex scanner failed

Expected Results:  just loaded the keymap

Additional info:

I did not have this problem in Red Hat 8, but I did have it in 9.

The console keymaps come from the kbd package.  Changing components.
