As I mentioned in the PR, that won't work because geom silently
corrects the offset to be a multiple of 63.

Another thing I noticed in the installation program is that the
keyboard layout list is out of order: for example the USA layout
shouldn't be first, and Ireland is down near the bottom when it should
be near the top.

The last thing I've noticed today is the default shell in the "Add
User" section: I think tcsh might be better than csh.
