Description of problem:
A USB keyboard is not recognized when in single-user mode. 

Once you are in this state, you must plug in a PS/2 keyboard in order
to shutdown/reboot the system. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora ... using USB keyboard
2. use grub to boot into single user mode ... using USB keyboard
3. Observe that you cannot type anything ... using USB keyboard
4. Suppress shock when you realize that you cannot reboot system
5. Find PS/2 keyboard
6. reboot system ... using PS/2 keyboard

Actual Results:  USB keyboard does not work in single user mode

Expected Results:  USB keyboard should work in single user mode

Additional info:

I am quite sure that I had this same problem with RedHat 9, but did
not report it ... sorry. 

I don't know if this is a 'usbutils' thing, but it is the closest
package I could find.

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/
