Just booted Vector 7 Live from a USB key and it is a gorgeous distro.

However, my keyboard misbehaves when I am typing. "o"'s are "6"'s for example.

I tried a number of alternate keyboard layouts, but to the same end...

If I can get this fixed, all i need to get working is the suspend function :-)

live has num-lock enabled by default. On laptops with a number pad this is fine but for those without some of your keys default to there secondary function of being number keys.  Thy deactivating the num-lock.  On my acer netbook that is function+f11
