Are you using a USB or PS/2 keyboard. Apparently some of these machines will not work properly with PS/2 keyboards and the loader.
Comment 2 Elliot Peele 2003-04-02 22:44:02 UTC
I'm using a ps/2 keyboard. After talking with msw and katzj last night found that this hardware doesn't have a real ps2 controller. If you boot with nousb it works though.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2003-04-02 22:55:53 UTC
To clarify - it works with a ps/2 keyboard if you boot with nousb?
Comment 4 Elliot Peele 2003-04-02 23:18:28 UTC
yes it works with a ps/2 keyboard and mouse when you boot nousb.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem persists. The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
