Sure.  Here are some pointers to useful documentation.



I don't think it is architecture specific.

I also think it strange that your USB keyboard is not working with
linux.  Many of my machines only have a USB keyboard and they have all
worked fine with linux.  The problems I have had were when the
machine's firmware BIOS did not support USB keyboards.  For those I
needed to use a ps2 keyboard to configure the BIOS.  After I got them
booting they were fine.
