Hi,
The BIOS gives basic support for the keyboard (like when you edit the boot sequence for instance). During the install some/several distributions add mouse support, with others the install is completely keyboard based.

It's also worth pointing out that RH9 is very old and unlikely to support a lot of modern hardware.
