Change the default keyboard layout

This may be a good idea for a local computer, but for a remote server (especially one that may have to be controlled even sporadically by the tech guy at the colocation facility), you can run into problems setting the input menu to anything but the standard. For example, if you attempt to log in via ARD using Chicken of the VNC, your local Dvorak will be re-Dvorakized by the server, and you will not be able to gain access. If I remember correctly, setting your local machine to U.S. still doesn't work, so you are left with connecting with the machine via SSL in Terminal.app.
