I began experimenting with Dvorak keyboard layout and I am quite liking it even though I type very slowly as I don't yet know where all the letters are :P
One problew however is that there is only USA specific layout in 98SE and I would like to type õäöü without ALT+xxx cowbinations, US-international has all of them nicely available behind dead keys and AltGr+x combinations.
I found some Dvorak-International layout files and installers but 98SE seems not to understand KLC files and the installers want 2K/XP/Vista/7.

Does anyone know anything helpful ?

Yes :yes: .

See if you can use this installer (reported as working on 98SE), then see if you can manage to "tweak" it to accept your alternate .klc file:

Also you can try this:

the Lite edition is freeware though cannot say if it's "enough" for what you need/want to do.

Keyboard Layout Manager seems to do the trick !

Regarding Yes/No, I am too polite and afraid to sound too demanding :P

EDIT: I looked into KBD files and they did not seem too complex, mabe I will reverse engineer it a bit...
