firstboot should use whatever the keymap is specified in the XF86Config file. 
Can you attach that file?
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2003-10-15 14:36:00 EDT
Actually, nevermind.  This is an rhgb problem since rhgb is somehow defaulting
to a US keymap.  Since firstboot inherits rhgb's X server, it's picking up the
US keymap.  When firstboot ends, that X session dies and gdm starts up a new one
which pulls the correct keymap from the XF86Config file

Changing component to rhgb.
