International keyboard

Hi all

I'm on a Slack10.2 machine that is running the default Slack Xfce4.2.0 
desktop. I am based in the UK so I want to be able to use a UK keyboard. 
I also dual-boot into other Linux distros and WinXP. Whenever I come 
back into Xfce though - it never remembers my keyboard map preference. 
How can I get it to remember it from one login to the next. KDE does it, 
but I don't know how. To get the keyboard map to coincide with the keys 
I'm using I have to enter kxkb at the command line. That is a bit of a pain.

Any thoughts/ideas/fixes?
