Can you steal a keyboard from another PC for a few moments? If it's
another Linux PC you can usually just unplug it, use it, then plug it
back in, but it's better if you have some old, spare keyboard to try
this with.

Nah, don't worry about that. As someone who has pestered this and
other lists for years it's the nature of the beast and we'd like to
see you get running.

What is that specific machine running currently? An earlier Fedora
Core or something else. (Or nothing since it's new.)
