No USB Keyboard support in Redhat 7.2 Installation

Does anyone know a fix for my problem? During Installation of RedHat 7.2 my USB Keyboard does not work. It is a Compaq 105-key Internet Keyboard and I can not get through the installation without using it. I've tried both text and graphical installations... Does anyone have any ideas?

I would probably just cheat and borrow a 'normal' keyboard for the installation. Afterwards you should be able to build the USB core suport into the kernel (or modules).

That's what I had planned on doing because I'm impatient, but I had hoped there was another way. I also want to post this problem to make it public and hopefully push RedHat to not make a Microsoft-like mistake before they release a future distribution. Thanks for the idea, though.
