Only one at a time.

I found it via another post, console-setup was not installed, fixed that 
and dpkg-reconfigured the keyboard and the console, rebooted, x is 
running normally now. Thats a relief, I thought I was going to have to 
hack on udev. :(

Thanks for asking.  To find the clue, install locate, updatedb, then look 
for README.Debian, and out of the 40 or 50 that spits out, read the one 
with keyboard-config in its locate output line.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
