Hello Rugxulo,

We will try your method inside the config code change and other zip file for 
the keyboard problem.

As you write its not loading into memory the keyb.exe file to run any keyboard 
layouts. It comes default 437 and giving not any errors while it loads.

Also if there are other written keyboard program codes for freedos that 
supports our cpu class that  who can find any working code for if it is 
sucessful as i wrote we will give a reward.

Thanks and Best regards.

BTW, just to state the obvious, although I know that cp857 is mostly
preferred for Turkish (not that I understand it), but (with FreeDOS)
I've used cp853 successfully (which was the previously preferred
codepage for Turkish, Maltese, and Esperanto).

Code page 853 - Wikipedia, the free 
Code page 853 (also known as CP 853 or IBM 00853) is a code page used under DOS 
to write Turkish, Maltese, and Esperanto. It includes all characters from ISO 

But if all you want to do is edit text, you can even edit Unicode with
various DOS editors (e.g. GNU Emacs, Blocek, or Mined).

I'll try to quote the relevant config I've used for cp853 (it's been a
while since I weakly tried it, but it did work):




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=853

nlsfunc /y %DOSDIR%\country.sys

REM (can unload later, needs 286+)
REM !! BUG ALERT !!: do NOT use 2009 KEYB*.SYS files w/ 2006 KEYB.EXE
keyb us,,%DOSDIR%\keyboard.sys
echo KEYB: Ctrl-Alt-F1 to disable or Ctrl-Alt-F2 to re-enable!

mode con cp /status
