    Debian install - usb keyboard

    Grrr,

    After googling my install issue with Debian it appears I will have to rustle an AT keyboard to get the install going?? Nuts! According to the reading I've done there are Debian based distros that will install with a usb keyboard.

    Come to think of it Libranet 1.9.1 did just fine, but they have not implemented a cure in Woody?? Maybe this should have been in Rants. >

    in many BIOS's you can have USB keyboards emulate PS2/AT keyboards...

    Thats discrimination! In the US we have laws against that. Its called "equal rights to the distro". No discriminating Slackware !!! Dont make the "PC" police unleash Distro Nazis.
