Re: installing sarge with USB keyboard
This is just for the record;
I got it to work with temporarily using a different network card.
The keyboard worked fine with 2.6.12 (from the netinst CD I used)
but the Intel 1000 NIC [Ethernet controller: Intel Corp.: Unknown device
109a (rev 01) ]
only started working when I used a newer kernel from backports.org
Thanks for every bodies help

I just got a new Pentium D Dell PC and was very surprised when
it didn't respond on the first (choose language) screen of
debian-installer... It took me a while, but then I realized:
The PC was using a USB keyboard !
Strange, installation on my em64t PC worked fine with a USB
keyboard. Try enabling 'Legacy USB support' (or similar) in the
BIOS, this will make the machine emulate a PS/2 keyboard in place
of the USB one. You can switch it back after installation.
Also I'm anticipating that there will be problems with the
"Intel 1000(?) gigabit" network card ?
Should be fine, sarge has the e1000 driver.
