loadkeys is inoperative -- this does not apply to redhat-keyboard-config but the /bin/loadkeys binary

Description of problem:
When executing the /bin/loadkeys command the keymap is not changed and loadkeys
exits with an error. It appears to me that there is an extra leading
forward-slash that causes the problem. See my error message below.
[root@ben root]# old.loadkeys dvorak
input in flex scanner failed
I coppied in the loadkeys binary from my RH8 box and now it works fine.
[root@ben root]# loadkeys dvorak
PS Sorry to assign this to redhat-config-keyboard. It's not a good match but
it's the best I could find.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot with dvorak as the default keymap
2.issue the loadkeys command
Actual Results: error message showing an extra leading forward slash
Expected Results: keymap change
I think that kbd is the component you are looking for.
