So you got a kernel with wscons (does this mean the snapshot's
GENERIC is already the -current one?).
You'll need device special files for it and /etc/ttys entries.
The former are generated by "sh MAKEDEV all", the latter you'll
probably have to change yourself. Look at -current's etc/etc.i386/ttys
prototype. (I changed this later, so perhaps the shapshot came
in-between?) The /dev/ttyE0... entries are for wscons.

There is a "wsconscfg" and a "wsconsctl", both with manpages.
I'll add an xref.
(Is danish scandinavian enough?:-)
Keyboard maps can be set by "wsconsctl -w encoding=xx", but
there is no finnish keymap yet.
If you can make sense of the tables in sys/dev/pckbc/wskbdmap_mfii.c,
you can send me one, and I'll integrate it.
