dell keyboard not recognized in debian install 2.4 boot

too weird....

i can boot with the debian cd options linux, compact, vanilla, default <enter> etc... and my keyboard is easily recognized.

when i boot using bf24 <which i really need to or else it's struggle with creating some ultra100 module floppies.. see for details> then my keyboard is just ...dead...

so... i use..

boot: bf24 bootkbd=qwerty/us <also works with every other boot option>

nope... still not good....keyboard Still dead

anyone have any ideas? the debian cd's i have are from and they are debian 3.0 R1. My desktop is a dell 8250 with a standard dell keyboard.

thanks for any ideas
