Ubuntu's alternate and mini isos use the same Debian installer as
Debian's cd, netinst, and bcard isos so it is easy to confuse their
names - if you use both.

I have no idea what d-i "module" selects and sets the keyboard but
Debian's keyboard settings are held in /etc/default/keyboard. If you
prefer not to edit it directly, you can use "dpkg-reconfigure
keyboard-configuration" to modify it.

As Eduardo rightly says, your problem is a non-issue for the
debian-boot list because it is not a help list.
