This sounds like an issue with your keyboard or the keyboard driver.
Comment 2 Peter Elg 2002-08-27 16:58:07 EDT
I'd like to add that I am seeing this same issue. Installed 7.3 on
new Toshiba Laptop.  Keyboard works fine with Windows/XP, and it also
works fine if I am running Linux in one of the consoles before the
XFree86 graphics starts uup.  Any suggestions on what to look for would
be appreciated.

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/
