As I indicated (I thought) in my original post:

I use only ps2 products.

I am an experienced debian installer. I install debian servers in high volume
server environments. I store medical images on debian servers. I CARE about
the debian install system and I use debian in all my latest systems (>30
working debian servers...).

Standard PS/2 keyboard. I tried my usual pair of  Microsoft Internet Keyboard
and microsoft Intellimouse 1.2a ps2 mouse as well as trying knock off
keyboards and mice.

I think it is the kernel in the new installer. I repeat I have installed on
this system Woody and Sarge many times with no problem.

This keyboard failure to recognize happens with the debian etch installer or
if I upgrade a sarge install system on that box to the 2.6.15 debian kernel.

I have done 2 ab initio installs of sarge -> upgrade desktop system to sid.
Works with keyboard. Then upgrade kernel from sarge 2.6.8 to 2.6.15 no
keyboard, and can only log in and use system via ssh.

I have posted ouput from dmesg|input in that kernel - only sees the speaker
 no keyboard or mouse

dmesg on an upgraded sarge system with the 2.6.8 kernel tells me the

serio: i8042 AUX port at 0x60,0x64 irq 12
serio: i8042 KBD port at 0x60,0x64 irq 1

trying access hardware directly.

On this motherboard  the keyboard and mouse live on a subsystem called
I have checked that the debian kernel activates ISA:

I dont know what the problem is.
