I have the very same problem after installing Xandros 2.0.

Did you get if figured out? If so, post the solution.

My keyboard is a Logitech cordless optical connected to an USB port. Keyboard works fine with everything else.

My problem was the fact that I was using the USB port. I used the PS/2 adapter on my USB connector and plugged both my keyboard and mouse into PS/2 ports and everything works fine now. The Logitech user guide did say to use the PS/2 ports rather than the USB ports. Pays to read the manual.

Hope this helps.
