Yes, but you have to change it in the right place: If you change it in YaST's "Keyboard" section, it will only apply to your virtual consoles (e.g. Alt-Ctrl-F2). You need to go into Sax2, select the Input Device section, then Keyboard, and change the keyboard layout there. This will change the layout in X11.

thanks, I am now able to be more expressive in my typing (rather than typing at 4 wpm!)

Much appreciated, once again experts exchange comes up trumps.
