Running Knoppix 6.0.1 live and keyboard and mouse do not work.

I just got the Knoppix 6.0.1 live CD and it boots up but my keyboard and mouse do not work. Both are PS2. I'm new here so any suggestions would be appreciated.

My work fine, but I'm using USB mouse, PS2 Keyboard.
If you have a mouse adapter for USB, try it and see what happens.

They work otherwise, and in linux? You have tried some other live-cd? You might look in the BIOS and set USB mouse and USB keyboard to disabled.

Look on the KNOPPIX CD or online for the KNOPPIX and check the integrity of the KNOPPIX you have burned. The cheatcode for V5.1.1 is "knoppix testcd". You might try other cheatcodes for the keyboard and mouse.
