Description of problem:
Please help - I'm a linux newbie and having trouble installing Fedora.
When I boot from the first CD, I get the boot screen OK. At this point
the keyboard is fine, the num lock light is on and I can hit enter to
During the boot all my harware seems to be detected OK but half way
through I noticed that the num lock light went out and then stays off.
When the install starts I cannot get further that the first screen
because the keyboard is no longer responding.
The keyboard is a HP USB keyboard, but I don't think this is going to
make a difference because I've read some other postson other sites
that describe the same problem but when using a standard PS2 keyboard.
It is not a fault with the keyboard as I have tried numerous different
keyboards that all work under Windows and also off linux KDE on cd.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot off of a FC3 installation disk.
