bootup screen


I am running redhat 9.0, actually i am trying to run redhat 9.0, the machine is a dual boot system.

i was trying to get back into windows xp(which is my other system) however my keyboard and mouse are wireless usb, and they dont seem to respond at the OS choosing screen. can you tell me if there is any way i can enable usb wireless support at the bootup screen.

also i wanted to know if i should upgrade to mandrake 10.0 from redhat 9.0, i am just a newbie, should i stick to redhat 9.0 for the mo, get my basics right and then move to mandrake 10.0, i had problems installing mandrake 8.2

using keyboard on lilo is going to be a bios level thing afaik, check that it is enabled in your bios.

as for upgrading... if you want... won't lose anything, but there's little point really.

Have you concidered just a regular PS/2 keyboard?

Also make sure ALL USB options aro turned on in the bios. USB 1 and 2 (just in case)
