    7.4.1 boot keyboard is a bit funny

    Hi all,

    Just gave the 7.4.1 iso a spin and had a funny keyboard issue on boot. The punctuation is all messed up on my keyboard (US) and I have to type shift+0 to get the equals sign.

    Makes it a bit tricky to type the cheatcode "bootfrom=k741.iso"

    The keyboard works fine after the kernel boots.

    The other punctuation seems to have shifted around too.

    Letter keys and numbers are all in the right place

    Actually, I figured it out, the KNOPPIX_V7.4.1DVD-2014-09-15-EN.iso boot screen must be using the german keyboard mapping which explains the = being shift+0, and also QWERTY coming up as QWERTZ.

    I didn't notice the QWERTZ because when you type "knoppix" all the letters are in the same place.
