Agh, very sorry about that.

There is one more thing you could try, which is disabling usb-support in 
linux by booting with 'linux26 installer/probe/usb=false'.
I think that as soon as usb support is loaded by the kernel, this 
recognizes your keyboard and somehow conflicts with the 'legacy usb' 
option in the bios.

Maybe this problem should be reported as a bug against the 2.6.8 kernel 
packages, especially as I understand your keyboard works properly with 
the 2.4 kernel.

RAM incompatibility with the kernel seems very unlikely to me.
What is the exact problem you see and messages that you get?
