KnoppMyth Keyboard Doesnt Work When Installing

Hello all - I am in the process of building an HTPC, and want to test my video and sound card comptability quickly with KnoppMyth. I downloaded the distro, and it seems to start up nicely; however, my keyboard does not seem to function (eg, the first menu I get to, I am unable to navigate with either arrow keys or otherwise). I am using a USB wireless keyboard from Logictech, can it be that no driver is loaded for this? Note that this box does not have any 6 pin connectors for the keyboard.

MORE COLOUR: When booting, I get the following error messages:

PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 8 of bridge 0000:00:1c.0
PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 9 of bridge 0000:00:1c.0
Not Available because of resource collisions.

ide0: I/O resource 0x1F0 -0x1F7 not free
ide0: Ports already in use, skipping probe

... and then the Knoppmyth menu comes up, which I cannot navigate, as the keyboard doesn't work!
