For the first question more accurate detail is needed. Do this

$ grep EE /var/log/Xorg.0.log >xerrors

This will create a new plain text file in the current directory called 
xerrors. It contains only those lines on which EE appears when X tried 
to load. My system gave this:

Current Operating System: Linux grml 2.6.20-grml #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu May 
3 20:20:41 CEST 2007 i686
        (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
(EE) AIGLX: Screen 0 is not DRI capable

Paste that files contents into an email to grml at mur.at

Second question. Do ls -R /usr/share/keymaps | grep cz (Notice -R is a 
capital R for recursive not small r for reverse.) This will give you a 
list of Czech keymap files. Don't know what you will find on the live CD 
but my installed grml 1.0 gave this

cz-lat2.kmap.gz         lt.kmap.gz                 se-fi-ir209.kmap.gz
cz-lat2-prog.kmap.gz    lt.l4.kmap.gz              se-fi-lat6.kmap.gz
cz-us-qwerty.kmap.gz    lv-latin4.kmap.gz          se-ir209.kmap.gz
cz-us-qwertz.kmap.gz          mac-usb-fr_CH-latin1.kmap.gz
sunkeymap.kmap.gz        sunt5-cz-us.kmap.gz      sunt5-ru.kmap.gz
sunt4-es.kmap.gz         sunt5-fi-latin1.kmap.gz  sunt5-us-cz.kmap.gz

So if I do loadkeys /usr/share/keymaps/i386/qwerty/cz-us-qwerty.kmap.gz 
in a terminal then I will have a Czech keyboard.

To do the same for X have a look at /etc/X11/xorg.conf where you will 
find something like

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Generic Keyboard"
        Driver          "kbd"
        Option          "CoreKeyboard"
        Option          "XkbRules"      "xorg"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "pc104"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "us"

Change the uk to cz and restart X and you should then be right. European 
keyboards are usually 105 keys rather than 104.
