    Do you get a system start-up error message saying
    KDSKBENT : Invalid argument Failed to bind key xxx to value xxxx

    If so , then you are loading the unicode key in
    To fix the keyboard problem , comment out (or delete) 'dumpkeys |
    loadkeys --unicode'

    I had my keyboard set to [US] International when I installed FC2 and I kept
    getting this error message and the same type of keyboard problem as you have
    described , after I change the keyboard setting to [US] English and edited
    the /bin/unicode_start file , everything was fixed.

    Check the /bin/unicode_start file to see if you are loading the unicode.
