keyboard problem

i have a usb keyboard 'btc', when i type letters it stops for a couple of seconds and then it's ok
does someone have an idea.
i have a asus p4p800vm motherboard with onboard usb.
in windows xp it works fine.

maybe redhat need special usb2 drivers ??? where can i download
by the way it took me 5 minutes to type this post, because of the problem!!!!!!

I don't think this is a USB driver problem, maybe more
along the lines of DMA turned off, or maybe the apm
daemon not playing nicely with your MoBo ...
Have a look at top's output, do you get CPU spikes
in during the periods of slow keyboard? Try killing
apmd if it's running ...

That said: RH is notorious for the fact that it fires
up a gazillion of little helpers you probably don't
need at all ... ;)

i had a more serious problem than this when i first booted fedora on there precompiled kernel it locked out all of my keyboard. i later found out that there was little or no usb config in the modprobe.conf and there was some install remove thing crashimg my usb and ps2 ports i had to manually add a load of install usb modprobe commands to sort it. take a look at thomars modprobe.conf file see how his is setup i know it is for something else but it gives you an idea
