installation help


i have read all the directions for installing the new slackware on my pc... i am new to linux and have never used it before.

Welcome to Linux 2.4.26.

login:

my keyboard doesnt work when i reach that spot... it worked throughout the whole installation processes without any problems... i dont know what the problem is and have no idea what to do... my keyboard works before it starts loading up but after it reaches the login part it stops working...

any help would be greatly appreciated... thx
