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
Loading //lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/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
Loading /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/dvorak/dvorak.map.gz

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):

How reproducible:

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.
