This sounds most likely to be a bad interaction between your bios and the kernel.
Are you using a PS/2 keyboard and mouse, or USB?

Comment 2 Walter Jaycox 2002-06-14 19:35:08 UTC
if system is rebooted mouse and keyboard are disabled.
Mouse is a 2 button ps/2. Mouse and keyboard are generic

Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2002-06-14 19:42:20 UTC
ok can you try adding "reboot=b" at the end of the line with "vmlinuz" in
/etc/grub/grub.conf ? (and then reboot into that to take effect, and THEN see if
it's fixced ;)
