do they work before booting, when you can make it start in text mode?

my first thought when reading your post was " I bet they're USB keyboard and mouse."
you might can borrow somebody else's ps/2 stuff to get installed, then get the usb stuff working.

I borrowed a ps/2 keyboad and mouse and plugged them in.
Knoppix loaded up and both keyboard and mouse worked.
if i take them out and plug in the USB ones will they work?
i have to keep coming back to windows beacuse i dont know how to access the net from knoppix.

there may be some knoppix boot options for usb keyboard and mouse.
knoppix should set up cable or dsl for you. if you have a winmodem, give up now.
