Question Can't get Suse 9.1 to load with my USB only setup

I just bought a computer from a friend of mine. I'm running Win XP Media Center. I now want to install Suse 9.1. My computer only has USB for the mouse and keyboard. The Mouse is a logitech wheel mouse, and the keyboard is a Belkin. I searched through the product list and found the mouse to be problematic and the keyboard was not even listed.
-My question is what are some options that I have for fixing this problem.
please keep in mind I am really new to linux and therefore Suse but am willing to try anything as long as it is spelled out clearly. I can install hardware easily. The only thing that might give me problems is getting to root and executing scripts. Any help however is appreciated.

just try and install it now and worry about the hardware later. Suse is pretty good at picking up what you've got plugged in. If it doesn't find your hardware automatically, you can always try and load the modules (drivers) for it later.
