To use the Hungarian, Czech, Slovakian, or Norwegiankeyboard support function of MS-DOS version 5.0, you must load thecorrect character set (code page) and use a 101-key keyboard.

Hungarian, Czech, Slovakian, and Norwegian keyboardsare not supported with a standard 84-key keyboard.
More information
For example, when using the Hungarian character set (code page), thefollowing statement is valid only for 101-key keyboards:
   keyb hu,,[drive]:[directory path]\keyboard.sys				
(Where [drive]:[directory path] is the location of KEYBOARD.SYS.)

When using an 84-key keyboard, the keyboard will default back tothe English character set (code page).

The following keyboard codes require the correct character set (codepage) and a 101-key keyboard:
                             Keyboard   Country                   Code   --------------            --------   Czech Republic            CZ   Slovakia                  SL   Norway                    NO
