in your rc.conf file (/etc folder) look for the line KEYMAP="" and change the to us or whatever layout you want

you can find the available layouts in "/usr/share/kbd/keymaps" and the sub folders, just use the name minux the .map.gz


if you want to use "/usr/share/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/" then just add "us" to the config file
