Hi Eric,

thanks for the quick reply. In the meantime I found out that I can load a 
German layout with just "keyb gr", just not the layout file itself or the 
/E switch that is mentioned in that article. I assume the gr.kl is 
embedded in the keyboard.sys file. 
That's good enough for me. I don't need the Euro sign. I use FreeDOS 
mainly on a USB stick for flashing bios and controller cards on rack 
machines and my own workstations. And it drives me crazy if I have to 
input some special characters like - _ / which commonly occur. Each time I 
have to go by trial and error. And it seems you cannot type a ~ (tilde) at 
all on a German keyboard under an en-us layout. 
Now I can :-)
There is one thing still with keyb, though, that makes me wonder. 
Shouldn't I be able to run it from autoexec.bat? I added "keyb gr" to it, 
but it isn't executed (or it doesn't work at this stage). I have to run it 
manually at the prompt. I'm also running in autoexec.bat, right 
before that. I don't know what that does. I just have it in there and 
don't know if I added it some time ago or if it came with the first 
FreeDOS configuration. Should I remove it?

That's the point where the circle starts (and ends). There are no plain 
keyboard layout files (.kl) in there, only the .key files. But these need 
kc for compiling to a .kl file. And there's nowhere you can get kc from.
I don't need it now anymore it seems. But still wondering if it's really 
not available from anywhere.

> Viel Spass!
