 Read the README file in the lilo source.  Note that the default path
to the kbd data is /usr/lib/kbd/keytables, and the default extension
is .kmap.  I think you said you were on ubuntu, they probably still
use consoletools and perhaps .map files.

 [googles...]  According to http://linuxgazette.net/157/anonymous.html
the situation on ubuntu is worse than that - they haven't installed
them.  I guess you can build kbd - if that is not enough to create
the map files, try installing it into /tools (I haven't checked to
see if it supports DESTDIR).  All you really want is the keymaps.

 Alternatively, I believe the linux kernel  defaults to an American
keymap so you maybe don't need to do anything.
