Setting non-US Keyboard:

Debian

First install the missing packages :

apt-get install console-data
apt-get install console-tools

then execute:

dpkg-reconfigure console-data

and you can set the keyboard map. Remember that the keyboard map nets not only to match your actual keyboard Layout but also the keyboard-map set in your windows control-panel and in case of 32-bit-windows that of language set for 16-bit applications.

Setting the keyboard map will enable you to copy-and-paste into the console including the correct special characters.
