The following is my setup for my keyboard in X.  To get chars like ä I
just press the right windows key then " a.  Nice and easy, and it wont
interfere with typing stuff in the shell.  Not sure how to achieve the
same thing in console though.

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Generic Keyboard"
        Driver          "keyboard"
        Option          "CoreKeyboard"
        Option          "XkbRules"      "xfree86"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "pc104"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "us"
