I am researching some online sources to figure out my
problem with Fedora install hanging.  There's been
some suggestions already, and if I understand them
correctly, that the install kernel may be incompatible
with USB keyboard (from this site
http://www.rhil.net/docs/faq.html#install_dies).  Then
I found this site
(http://www.vidarholen.net/contents/linuxtips/) and
the following excerpts from it:

==== Linux problems with solution ===
USB mouse using /dev/psaux, the ps/2 mouse device. 
Bios usb legacy support in action, probably because
Linux didn't probe for USB devices (which causes the
bios to release control of them). 
Compile the kernel with USB support, Input Core and

I checked my dmesg and found these two lines:
   hid-core.c: USB HID support drivers
   mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice

Comparing my setup with the above I am concluding that
the problem is indeed the bios USB legacy support in
action.  So what can I do to fix this for the install

Thanks Leila
