Please don't post the same question twice. More work for those of us that answer them =)

Have a look at this:
viewtopic.php?t=3985

I explained how to set your timezone there. You have to replace localtime and modify the clock conf (and restart clock).

Ok, TimeZone was easy. Just copy the
/usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Helsinki to /etc/localtime.
Also the "TIMEZONE="Europe/Helsinki" to /etc/conf.d/clock

But how to change the keyboard layout to Finnish?
