From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.0 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020509

Description of problem:
The /etc/sysconfig/keyboard section in the Reference Guide indicates that

/lib/keymaps/i386.  Users following the Ref Guide instructions may incorrectly
believe that they are missing the keytables.

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

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  /usr/lib/kbd/keymaps/i386 - no such directory
/lib/kbd/keymaps/i386 - contains keytable directories

Expected Results:  Ref Guide should remove "/usr" from the two directory
references in the KEYTABLE section -- files are under /lib/kbd/..., not

Good catch!

I am not sure how long that path has been in the docs, so I'll investigate and
put a docs errata out. I will close the bug when it is done.

This came in too late to effect the 8.0 release cycle, so I have posted an
errata for both 7.3 and 8.0 as well as correcting the source for posterity :-)

Thank you for catching this and taking the time to report it.
