Sure thing:

After running the 'make…menuconfig' command during §7.10.1 and before
running 'make…', you should run the following command:

loadkeys -m /usr/share/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/uk.map.gz >

for a UK layout, or:

loadkeys -m /usr/share/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/se-lat6.map.gz >

to load up one of the Swedish keyboard layouts into the kernel source
for you. You should take a look at the
/usr/share/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/ directory yourself to verify which
layout it is you want/need. Once you're happy with the above, you can
proceed with the rest of the book as normal.

Fingers crossed!
