I manged to change the keyboard map to Swedish in the console using these steps:
1. In the WebGUI goto System->Advanced->rc.conf and add this:
Name: keymap
Value: swedish.iso
2. Download the FreeBSD 9.0 install DVD.
Locate this file on the DVD:
USR\SHARE\SYSCONS\KEYMAPS\SWEDISH.ISO_KBD
Copy it to NAS4Free with this name:
/usr/share/syscons/keymaps/swedish.iso.kbd
3. Reboot!
Now the keyboard mapping should work in the console. If you want a different map just use one of the other files on the install DVD. It would be nice if NAS4Free included the maps in its install because not having the correct keymap is very annoying.

Hi,
I want a german keybord layout in console and have done your way, but the changes on usb-stick are temporary, when I restart the 'german.iso_kbd' is not on the system.

only if you install embeded Nas4Free.
If you want persistent , make a Full Install , not a embeded

Is possible in embedded too.
Look at this great post ""http://forums.nas4free.org/viewtopic.ph ... 1335#p5432"" by alex123. Thanks Alex.
Follow it and replace the step #10 with:
10.1. In the WebGUI goto System->Advanced->rc.conf and add this:
Name: keymap
Value: swedish.iso
10.2. Download the FreeBSD 9.0 install DVD.
Locate this file on the DVD:
USR\SHARE\SYSCONS\KEYMAPS\SWEDISH.ISO_KBD
Copy it to NAS4Free with this name:
/md/usr/share/syscons/keymaps/swedish.iso.kbd
Continue with steps 11,12,13 and reboot.
