What sort of keyboard do you have? Do you have any trouble using the
keyboard in the BIOS? Can you borrow a DOS boot disk from anywhere (or
try the FreeDOS project).

If it's a USB keyboard, I'm guessing that there isn't enough support
anywhere for the keyboard to work until Linux has booted a long way. Try
looking for USB legacy support in your BIOS.

Hope this helps,

James.
