Windows – MS-DOS 6.22 keyboard configuration

keyboardmicrosoft-virtual-pcms-doswindows-3.1

I have MS-DOS 6.22 in a virtual machine (Virtual PC 2007) and I wanted to properly configure the keyboard.

The keyboard I have is a French-Canadian one (FYI in Windows XP my keyboard is labeled "Français (Canada) – Français (Canada)" in the control pannel).

What do I need to put in autoexec.bat and config.sys in order to use the keyboard properly (Windows 3.11 will be installed later if it matters)?

I haven't configured DOS since like 14 years so all my references are lost/trashed now 🙂

Wasn't it something like this in autoexec.bat? Be sure to check the real codepages and keyb variables.
