See: http://www.linuxtx.org/x86_64faq.html  - you need an external
keyboard for the install.

Probably won't be fixed for FC1 - please try FC2 development.

I just tried to install Core 2 Test 3 on 6805.  Will not recognize
built-in keyboard or mouse during install - must have external
keyboard and mouse to install.  Once installed, I tried booting
without any attachments.  Boot hangs starting up the second USB device
(ehci).  If I reboot and attach a keyboard and mouse, the system will
eventually boot up (has other problems.)  Still getting many messages
like this when booting:

atkbd.c: Unknown key released (translated set 0, code 0x41 on
atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes 41 <keycode>' to make it known.
