How to change to another keyboard layout, there are two things you have to do.
If you want to have correct layout both on X and on console.

We take the console first.

First you have to install the extension kmaps.tcz
And the you need to add the bootcode kmap=qwerty/fi-latin9
See http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/install.html#4_

And for X you can do as follow.
See this link: https://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,26337.msg169837.html#msg169837

You need to change the file to your country, from "se" to "fi".

For bootcodes, you can look at chapter 10 of the core book http://tinycorelinux.net/book.html

You'll have to locate your extlinux.conf file. For example, in my case (after a frugal install on my SSD), I can edit it by using vi in the terminal to edit it:
Code: [Select]
vi /mnt/sda1/tce/boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf
