Ok, I freshly installed RH 7.1 on my Alpha. *I boot the computer and the Alpha's SRM detects the keyboard (I have to type in [tt]boot[/tt] before the computer boots up into Linux). *I have a strange trackball (made by Mouse Systems, it has a serial connector but is attached to a PS2 adapter), so I think that I can get around that problem by finding my old mouse and attaching it.
How do I get my keyboard detected by Linux? *I can't obviously log in and take care of the problem if it doesn't first get detected. *It is an old PS2 101 key keyboard. *Any suggestions?
PS...I used both the keyboard and the mouse when I was using the graphical mode install. *They both worked fine.
