While this may be a tdfx driver problem (Kostas Gewrgiou is working on it for
PPC, don't know about the current state), it may also be a missing line

    Load "extmod"

in the XF86Config Module Section.

Have you tried Option "XkbDisable" in the keyboard section? Or maybe you just
need to configure Xkb.

It might be helpful if you posted your XF86Config and maybe the server log or
put them up somewhere for us to look at.
