    lang= be gives Belgian - azerty keyboard but RUSSIAN menus

    I boot KNOPPIX 7.2.0 on a Toshiba Satelite P855, from a USB flash drive.
    Note that booting from CD is not possible!
    I have a Belgian AZERTY-keyboard (most options give a QWERTY-keyboard).
    Setting the following parameters in Syslnx64.cfg
    # KBDMAP be.kbd
    LABEL knoppix
    KERNEL linux
    APPEND lang=be apm=power-off initrd=minirt.gz nomce libata.force=noncq hpsa.hpsa_allow_any=1 loglevel=1
    LABEL knoppix64
    KERNEL linux64
    APPEND lang=be apm=power-off initrd=minirt.gz nomce libata.force=noncq hpsa.hpsa_allow_any=1 loglevel=1

    The other language options are set to Lang=en

    gives the desired azerty keyboard, but the main GUI menus are in RUSSIAN !!!
    I would like to have them in English.

    It seems that be stands for Bielo-Russian?

    Perhaps you have to declare lang=, keyboard= and xkeyboard=

    Puttig following lines in syslnx64.cfg does the job:
    LABEL knoppix64
    KERNEL linux64
    APPEND lang=nl xkeyboard=be keyboard=be-latin1 apm=power-off initrd=minirt.gz nomce libata.force=noncq hpsa.hpsa_allow_any=1 loglevel=1
