Keyboard does not respond in 2.6
 
Hi, as soon as I load a 2.6 kernel, my keyboard stops responding.
The keyboard is a standard PS/2 keyboard.
I can type fine in the bootloader, but as soon as I hit 'Enter' and linux loads, I can't type.
Num/scroll/caps lock no longer toggle the keyboard LEDs.

This problem happens on both the gentoo and ubuntu bootcds. I do not know exactly what kernel versions or what they were compiled with, but i'm assuming a bootcd would have keyboard support..

I currently do not have linux installed, and I realy know nothing about linux, so trying to compile my own kernel probably isn't an option.

I built the computer myself, its got an Asus P4P800 with an Intel P4 2.4C.

Any help would be appreciated.

you might forgot to check compile keyboard support option in the kernel
