Default Phonetic Russian keyboard ?!

I asked this question in the pc-bsd forum but got not answer. Since pc-bsd is effectively freebsd, I assume the answer, if any, would be the same for both. Here goes:

I have PC-BSD 1.5.1 installed on an older Dell laptop and have need to use a phonetic Russian keyboard to write some e-mails. In M$ and Linux there are several variants of Russian keyboard letter placement: standard (implicit), phonetic, typewriter, Tartar (Tatar), etc.

At sixty four and being a fast touch typist, I'm not pleased with the idea of learning the 'official' Russian keyboard layout. How can I make PC-BSD use and follow the phonetic layout? Or am I just whistling Дихие?

Default

is it the keyboard that starts with
йцукен
?
if so use
setxkbmap ru

might try other options as well

EDIT....
Seams you need
Code:
setxkbmap ru phonetic
TIP: make sure you have script (with russian letters), or menu (like i do, i use fvwm), so you can switch back to english when you need, otherwise you will have a problem
