Description of Problem: 
Hampton - beta1 
Norwegian ftp-install (local), after booting the new system, the norwegian special letters  
(ae, oe, aa) is wrong. In X (KDE), they are OK. 
I tried kbdconfig to, selecting no-latin1, same result.

I don't really know which package this bug belongs to... 
How Reproducible: 
all the time

As I see it, the problem is in rc.sysinit 

it looks for 

	 -f /lib/kbd/consolefonts/$SYSFONT.gz -o \
	 -f /lib/kbd/consolefonts/$SYSFONT.psf.gz ]; then

and the font it wants is

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         1977 Jan 30 12:52

(ie. .psfu.gz, not .psf.gz)
