The installer is just a "best guess" type of thing, not perfect by any
stretch. It may be trite to assume users are already familiar with
DOS, but that's somewhat implied.


But here's a partial (better?) solution:

display con=(ega,,3)
mode con cp prep=((853) %CPIDIR%\ega.cpx)
mode con cp prep=((,737,869) %CPIDIR%\ega5.cpx)
mode con cp sel=%DEFAULT%

if "%DEFAULT%"=="853" keyb us,,%DOSDIR%\keyboard.sys
if not "%DEFAULT%"=="853" keyb gk,,%DOSDIR%\keybrd2.sys
echo KEYB: Ctrl-Alt-F1 to disable or Ctrl-Alt-F2 to re-enable!

P.S. More specifically, it would be nice to know which codepage(s) and
keyboard layouts you personally intend to use for your language. (Or
did I miss that part?)   :-)
