How do I change my keyboard layout setting?

Can anyone tell me how to change my keyboard setting to, say, US104 key?

I know I was asked to select my keyboard when I first installed RedHat Linux 7.1, but I do not know when I can change it.

Right now, I cannot use a single- and double quotation marks.  Thanks for helping a linux newbie.

XF86Setup is the GUI. Or more correct: it's a GUI if there is a X server running, otherwise it's curses based.

XF86Setup is located in /usr/X11R6/bin, usually. just start it (from command line)

You can use kbdconfig from a console window to easily change to contents of /etc/sysconfig/keyboard, which determines what keyboard layout is loaded when the system boots. When X is configured the system keyboard definition will be inherited, or as ahoffman correctly pointed out can be manually configured.

Thanks for your comments!

I'm wondering if there's a GUI solution in X windows (instead of command-line navigation) to change the keyboard layout...

In other words, is there a control panel in X to do this?

And, ahoffmann, how do I go to XF86Setup?  (I'm sorry I'm a complete newbie...!)
