    Here's a copy of the adm file I use to set the keyboard to UK layout
    Keyboard.txt

    Change the file extension from .txt to .adm and then follow the step 1-11 instructions on the link Witch posted.
    If you also need to change the regional and language settings from US time/currency you can do this using GPP

    User - Preferences - Control Panel settings - Regional Options

    Change the settings as you desire and then press f5 to enable the settings (You will see the red line change to green)
    Here's a good little guide that another edugeek member (Arthur) gave me to look at.

    For future reference, you could have also set this up using an answer file when deploying Windows 7.
