Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

If you did disable it and that didn't fix it, then try hitting a key about every second during boot and see when it breaks. When I had that problem it was GPM that was loading last and my keyboard worked just fine until that module started and then I had nothing.
Originally posted by Cedrik Hey reaz82, why do you think it is a system config problem as you said that your keybord works with the bare.i kernel.
What is your output with :
cat /usr/src/linux-2.6.7/.config | grep -i key
i dont think it's a system config problem.. i mean i am not sure what you mean by that.. all i can tell for now is that it works with the packaged bare.i kernel but not with my custom kernel.. the bare.i kernel lacks a lot of other stuff which is why i compiled the kernel ..
the keyboad doesnt respond during boot.. it's not like it messes up after gpm.. it just doesnt respond at all when the compiled kernel is loading..
