I decided to forward your message to the FreeDOS-devel mailing list.
It is clear, now, that the problem lies in the REGIONAL.BAT installer.
First, the FreeDOS installer looked for the turkish Q layout on
KEYBRD3.SYS, which is wrong. Now, it looks for it on KEYBOARD.SYS, which
is also wrong. Both turkish layouts are on KEYBRD2.SYS.
Also, there are references to *.KL files on the batch installer which
should be removed.
I imagine that, since the bulk of FreeDOS users seem to be savvy DOS
users, they themselves fix the incorrectly generated AUTOEXEC.BAT.
Again, I ask to whoever is in charge for the installer to fix it. I will
be always available to help, if necessary.
Thanks for your feedback, Thraex.

Para: Discussion and general questions about FreeDOS.
Just wanted to let you and the list know that I completely deleted my
previous VirtualBox install (and FreeDOS with it) and reinstalled
everything on Ubuntu 10.04.4 amd64. Allocated a bit more RAM a bit less
disk space to FreeDOS but no changes other than that...
...except that now even when I choose 59 Turkey Qwerty, I get a good old
US QWERTY layout, not the Turkish one. Why? I don't have the slightest
idea. When I type KEYB TR, here's what I get:
FreeDOS KEYB 2.01 - (c) Aitor Santamaria Merino - GNU GPL 2.0
Keyboard layout : C:\FDOS\BIN\KEYBOARD.SYS
Specified file does not contain information for this layout/id
Other than that, the previous error messages I had mentioned are still
there. (On my previous install, the country code 19 during the
installation which I suppose was for the Turkish F layout got me a US
QWERTY but although I got error messages, the country code 59 had the
correct Turkish QWERTY layout. Now I get US QWERTY for both of them).
It looks like this feature will need some testing when it's fixed. I can
happily volunteer for that, feel free to drop me an e-mail whenever you
need a tester.
