Description of problem:
I installed Redhat 8.0 (retail boxed) on my system and everything went smooth 
with the install.  However when I booted up after the install, the keyboard and 
mouse would not work after getting through GRUB.  The keyboard and mouse worked 
fine in GRUB, but during the bootup phase, everything seemed to load correctly 
until I get to the GUI with setting the system up the rest of the way. Now a 
practical way to fix this would be to not use a USB keyboard and mouse. 
However, that's they only ports (besides IEEE) that came with my motherboard.
