Unable to Start RHEL INstall with Wireless KB and Mouse


I have a dell system with a wireless keyboard and mouse.

When the install starts the keyboard and mouse do not work so I cannot proceed.

Is there a way to get around this or do I have to start the install using a wired keyboard and mouse.

Also, if I install using a wired keyboard and mouse can I then use a wirelsss keyboard and mouse regularly. does enterprise llinux support wireless keyboard and mouse?

Thanks

I am running White Box linux which is a direct clone of RHEL 3 AS and I am using a wireless keyboard and mouse through a KVM switch. I did the install using a wired keyboard and mouse and then just plugged in the wireless ones. Everything seeme to work for me.
