If you have an USB keyboard, you should not select the type5 keyboard.
See [1] for more information.

This is a known problem for the 2.4 kernel for which there is no easy 
solution. An unofficial image [2] has been made available which a kernel 
change that should solve it.

Also, a netboot installation using the 2.6 kernel is known to work with 
the SunBlade 150; a very good report for that is also available on [2].
