Sounds like the keyboard isn't functional. Does the caps-lock light
turn on and off when you press the capslock key?

What installer are you using? The latest snapshot ought to work on a

"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon
the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
