Mandrake 7.2 Xfree86 4 JP Keyboard difficulties


I have just installed Mandrake 7.2 (us) and have been
having difficulties beyond any hope of justification
in getting Xfree86 (4.0.1) to use a Japanese keyboard
layout.  The non-comment portion of the Keyboard
section of my XF86Config is as follows:

Section "Keyboard"
    Protocol    "Standard"
    AutoRepeat  250 30
    LeftAlt        Meta
    RightAlt       Meta
    ScrollLock     Compose
    RightCtl       Control
	XkbRules		"xfree86"
	XkbModel		"jp106"
	XkbLayout		"jp"
	XkbVariant		"jp106"
	XkbKeymap		"xfree86(jp106)"

Also the output from running X does not have anything
useful to say on the subject, just:

(**) XKB: rules: "xfree86"
(**) XKB: model: "jp106"

There is also an annoying tendency for the system to
require a suspend/resume to unwedge the mouse and
keyboard upon starting X.

This is not a notebook, but it is a cheapo Celeron
desktop system with an Intel 810 chipset / Video
controller.  The keyboard layout works correctly in
console mode.

Has anyone else got a similar setup worked out? if so,
would you mind sharing how you did it?
