The USB keyboard connected to a Tiger4 server(4 Itanium2 Processors)
running RedHat Advance Server 2.1 can't work.
This problem occurs under the default Linux kernel 2.4.18 of RHAS 2.1.
But the pristine Linux kernel 2.4.20 works well with the USB keyboard after
applying the corresponding IA64 patch. It may be a compatible bug in the former
