84-Key Keyboard Support for Special Character Set (Code Page) (77450)

The information in this article applies to:
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 5.0

This article was previously published under Q77450


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

The Hungarian, Czech, Slovakian, Norwegian, and Yugoslavian keyboards are not supported with a standard 84-key keyboard.


For example, when using the Hungarian character set (code page), the following 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 to the English character set (code page).

The following keyboard codes require the correct character set (code page) and a 101-key keyboard:
   Country                   Code
   --------------            --------

   Czech Republic            CZ
   Slovakia                  SL
   Norway                    NO
   Yugoslavia                YU
