    The file /etc/sysconfig/keyboard defines your keyboard.

    # find /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/ -name br-abnt*
    /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/br-abnt.map.gz
    /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/br-abnt2.map.gz

    Perhaps editing the following works:

    KEYBOARDTYPE="pc"
    KEYTABLE="br-abnt2"

    Then restart the system.

    Hi Dude, thanks for your time and answer.

    i did what you tell to do, but i search and find some other solution, based on your answer

    > unzip the file
    gunzip br-abnt2.map.gz

    then
    i used a simple comand

    # loadkeys br-abnt2

    work for me.

    Thanks Dude!

    ( but i edit too the keyboard file .... )
    tks
