I have computer with no CD ROM or internal floppy drive.
I copied ISO's on the hardrive and boot from external USB floppy from 
TDK. I am using PS/2 keyboard and mouse both from Microsoft

When after first state of the install my computer is rebooted and
the USB floppy drive is still plugged in my mouse and keyobard stop 
working. This problem doesn't happen if I unplug the USB floppy 
during reboot.

I have a hard time seeing how this isn't some weird BIOS bug, but it
could be something not resetting state properly.

I can actually reproduce it also in a different way. If I plugin USB 
key (Lexar media) and reboot computer and the key is plugged in, then 
the keyboard and mouse don't work. If the key is not plugged in 
during boot and I plug it in later, the keyboard and mouse works.

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

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/
