Edit your /etc/rc.conf, scroll down to about line 11. Read the comments, it will tell you where to find you choices.

This disn't seem to work for me.

I'm using a UK keyboard, but unless I enable keyboard layouts in KDE I get the american layout. " instead of @ etc.

Is there a KDE configuration file that overides rc.conf?

The /etc/rc.conf file is for your command line, I don't how to change it for KDE (KDE isn't my thing...I like enlightenment and fluxbox more), I would suggest posting in the Desktop Environments forum.
