Unhappy USB Keyboard does not work after installing kernel 2.6.2 @ Mandrake 10 RC1

Hi All. I have installed Mandrake 10 RC1 and i thought that it would have kernel 2.6 installed, but i found 2.4.22 on it.
Well, I have d/l the 2.6.2 source, configured with make xconfig, builded with make bzImage, builded and installed modules with (make modules and make modules_install), copied the image to /boot and finally modified lilo.conf.
System boots ok, but my USB Dell keyboard is not functional anymore.
USB Keyboard support is enabled at BIOS.
Any1 knows what i can do to fix it ?

Best regards,
Heitor Barcellos.

Most likely you need to load the appropriate 2.6 module for your USB controller. It should be one of ehci_hcd, ohci_hcd, or uhci_hcd. I don't use Mandrake so I'm not sure how you should set this up to happen on reboot, but perhaps you might try "alias usb-controller ?hci_hcd" (where ? is replaced by e, o, or u) in /etc/modules.conf, or wherever Mandrake wants it, once you figure out which module is the correct one for your hardware.
