Dear DM,

I would be most happy to make the installer source available to anyone that
would find it useful. It probably isn't as professional as what other
developers might come up with, but maybe it will give some ideas on one way
to help the user determine their keyboard layout.

Is there a general place to upload this kind of project on Crosswire, or
should I try to find another place to host the files?

In Christ,

- Adam
