Don't use strange, localized keyboards

If your non-U.S. keyboard has 83, 84 or 85 keys, you may never get a response out of it from BeOS, since BeOS tries to set up the keyboard in so called „mode 3“, where all keys send a single byte with scan-code. In „nomal mode“, which is „mode 2,“ the keyboard sends 1,2,3 or even 6 byte scan-codes (6 for Pause key). Be. probably chose „mode 3“ in order to speed up keyboard detection. You’ll need to replace your keyboard with a model with at least 101 keys.
