palo is used to construct the lifimage from kernel and initrd.
I don't believe your problem is with the TERM setting though.
Have you tried a different make/model of keyboard (or at least a
different physical keyboard)?

You could try simply adding "init=/bin/sh" to the boot params (like you
added nolangchooser), and see if the keyboard works then.  Also look
closely at the boot messages as they scroll past, for ones relating to
ps2/keyboard - something like 'no keyboard present' would indicate a
problem between your keyboard and the kernel driver.
